Nine Rescued on Mt. McLoughlin
Search and Rescue teams from Jackson County rescued 9 hikers, in three different parties who became lost on Mt. McLoughlin late Saturday and Sunday morning.
The hikers were lost in three separate groups, two of which were located late Saturday. One man was found Sunday morning after spending the night on mountain.
Saturday night the more than 50 searchers located the two groups of 4 and after bringing them down the mountain realized there was one vehicle left in the parking lot. There was some confusion as to manís connection to the other groups when the man placed the 9 1 1 call and before clarification could be made the call failed.
None of the hikers was injured or treated.
