David James and Marshall “Buster” Cabe started their trek Aug. 16 at the Downey Creek trailhead, about 18 miles east of Darrington, according to a statement from the Sheriff’s Office.
The hikers planned to take the trail to Bachelor Lake, then Cub Lake and had enough food and supplies to last them a week. They were supposed to return Friday.
The hikers’ families reported them missing Monday.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information about the hikers’ whereabouts to call 911.
