Community: Altadena & Sierra Madre Search & Rescue Teams, respond to Eaton Cyn.; missing 5 hikers located.
On April 5, 2013, at 7:00 am, Altadena & Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Teams along with Los Angeles County Sheriff's helicopter Air-5 responded to Eaton Canyon regarding 5 missing hikers that were reported missing from yesterday.

Due to thick fog, LASD Air-5 could not locate the hikers. Reserve deputies from the search and rescue teams hiked into the canyon and found all 5 hikers above the second waterfall area of Eaton Canyon. All 5 hikers were not injured and were safe. The search and rescue teams escorted the hikers out of Eaton Canyon without incident.

The female adult and 4 adult males were from Santa Ana, Glendale, Cypress and Long Beach.

Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team personnel are reserve sheriff’s deputies who volunteer their time to help others for $1 a year, and who partner with sheriff’s civilian volunteers who volunteer for free. There are over 150 members of the eight Search and Rescue teams of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, who were activated for over 450 search and rescue missions last year, making it one of the most active counties for search and rescue missions in the nation. Reserve deputies and civilian volunteers are supervised by full-time sheriff’s deputies.

*Enjoy Nature - Plan your Hike by filling out the Sheriff's Department's HIKING PLAN SHEET:

Hiking/Camping is a fun way to get family and friends together to enjoy the outdoors and to get some physical activity. However, you should always be prepared for the unexpected. You should tell family and friends what your plans are and provide a list of who will be going with you. That’s why the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department would like to remind the residents of Los Angeles County that having a hiking / camping plan is crucial to survival in case of an emergency.
