Mt. BAKER-SNOQUALIMIE NATIONAL FOREST, WASH. – Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue units responded to two separate incidents overnight. 

The first involved locating a 45 year-old Everett man after he failed to return to the trailhead from Barlow Pass.  The man was reported missing around 8 p.m. last night.  Searchers deployed around 8:30 p.m. and located the man early this morning.  He was cold and hungry, but uninjured, and safely escorted back to the trailhead around 9 a.m. today.

The second incident occurred around 1 a.m. today when a call came in that a 16 year-old female had sustained head and spine injuries after a fall near Foggy Lake. She was camping with a group of people who were able to keep her warm and sheltered until SnoHAWK10 arrived after daybreak and was able to transport her to Providence Regional Medical Center around 6:30 a.m.
