Six members of the BSSAR team responded to a late afternoon call for two lost hikers. The two young men had left mid morning to hike up Gallatin Peak with minimal equipment. The weather turned cold, windy and wet midway through their hike and they became disoriented and very cold. BSSAR provided the ground search with part of the team using dirt bikes in one area and the other team hiking in on foot to search another area. Helicopters were also employed however the weather conditions provided poor visibility. The two hikers were found by early evening and transported to the trail head by the BSSAR dirt bike team.

In 2013 BSSAR was called to the same area for another lost autistic male who was also found with out injury after an exhaustive search.
