Update, 11:40 a.m. Monday: The hikers were found and there were no injuries reported, according to a tweet by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s office.


The search for two missing hikers will resume on Monday after weather prevented access to the missing pair, according to the Snohomish County Search and Rescue Unit.

An emergency beacon was activated Saturday by one of the two hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail area near the border of Chelan County, the unit said in a statement Sunday.

The hikers are from Ohio and Tennessee and are believed to be men in their 20s.

“Search and Rescue members hiked in an attempt to reach the hikers but have since been hampered by avalanche danger and communications issues due to the terrain and distance,” the statement said.

“The weather and location has not been conducive to air operations,” the statement said.

The teams returned on Sunday and the unit said they will resume the search on Monday morning once a better route has been identified.
