26 July 2008 -- Two Lost Hikers Reported in the North Fork

Two hikers were reported missing from the North Fork trail at 10:30pm on Saturday evening. The hikers were supposed to have returned home to family members by 5:30pm. Nine members of BSSAR responded to this call. ATVs and dirt bikes were initially deployed at the North Fork trail to search for the two missing hikers. Just as the foot team was about to set out, the two hikers exited the forest via Hellroaring Creek trail. The hikers had sustained no injuries, but were tired and hungry.
