PINE MOUNTAIN, CA (Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 9:45 p.m.)—Frazier Park substation Sergeant Mark Brown has issued this report:
At about 6:30 p.m. Frazier Park Substation deputies and KCSO Air-1 were dispatched to a forested area north of Pine Mountain Club to locate five lost adult hikers. The hikers left a home in the Pine Mountain community that morning at about 10:30 a.m. They were hiking to a vehicle parked in a lot near Highway 166.  They had hand-held radios with them and called an amateur radio operator at the home in the Pine Mountain community to report they were lost.  Air-1 quickly located the lost hikers in a dry creek bed approximately 12 miles south of Highway 166. A ground unit transported them to their vehicle.  The hikers, who had plenty of food and water, were extremely exhausted, but did not require medical aid.
