MOUNT SHASTA, Calif. — Search & Rescue volunteers in Siskiyou County worked to find and recover three hikers stranded on Mount Shasta over the weekend, the Sheriff's Office said on Monday.

Around 5:15 p.m. on Saturday, the Sheriff's Office said that it received a 911 call from two men reporting a lost hiker in the Clear Creek Trailhead area on Mt. Shasta. The men reported that they had been separated from their friend and needed help.

The hikers said that they had reached the summit around 2:30 p.m. and started to descend the mountain, hoping to reach their car before nightfall. When they realized that they wouldn't make it in time, the Sheriff's Office said that they did a Google search to find the fastest route down.

As they started on the new route, one of the hikers became separated, prompting the other two to call 911.

Siskiyou County's SAR team quickly headed out of the area, sending hikers from the Clear Creek Trailhead in the dark. They were unable to find any of the three lost hikers.

By 8 a.m. on Sunday, a larger search began. By 10:30 a.m., SAR hikers found two of the missing hikers "alive and well," but the third man remained missing.

At that point, California Highway Patrol's Northern Division Operations helicopter was called in to assist, quickly finding fresh tracks in the snow. Rescuers found the third hiker around 11 a.m., taking him to Mercy Mt. Shasta Hospital as a precaution.

The Sheriff's Office said that two of the men were wearing winter clothing, but the third was in a hooded sweatshirt, jeans, and tennis shoes.

"We would like to remind everyone that you should make a plan in advance for any wilderness excursions," the Sheriff's Office said. "Dress accordingly, safely and always bring food and water. Make a plan for your route, emergency contingency, and always notify a friend or family member of your plan."
