Footprint Found As Search Resumes For Lost Hiker
NORTH BEND, Wash. (Metro) -- King County search and rescue workers are hoping a footprint in the snow will lead them to a hiker missing in the Snoqualmie National Forest.
KING 5 News reports the search for 50-year-old John Wright of University Place resumed this morning, with about 40 searchers and helicopters focusing on the Green Mountain area, where another hiker reported seeing Wright on a trail.
Wright, an avid hiker, has been overdue on a day hike since Friday afternoon.
KING 5 News reports Wright's car was found at the Snoqualmie River Middle Fork Trailhead along Interstate 90.
