One Man Rescued, One Missing in Separate Incidents on Mt. Adams

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, WA - Yakima County Sheriff Deputies are looking for a hiker who seems to have gone missing on Mt. Adams. 

Deputies say the man found himself in unfamiliar terrain after nightfall. The mission is still ongoing, deputies say the Skamania County Sheriff's Office may take over the rescue mission if the man is found to be in that county.

In an unrelated case over the weekend, deputies say a hiker who fell and injured himself on Mt. Adams on Sunday, has now been rescued and is in the hospital. 

Deputies say the 39-year-old man called and reported that he fell in boulders, possibly breaking his leg and ribs. Because of bad weather and other challenges, deputies say the rescue took more than 15 hours.
