Doesn’t sound like it. The rescue was a single male hiker. He had one of those GPS devices that can be monitored and his wife could see that he was heading in the wrong direction, so she called us and we referred her to 911 to get Search and Rescue activated. They were also able to follow his GPS track to locate him immediately by helicopter, but the conditions were too dangerous to airlift him.

Major points for being equipped for SAR to find him easily. Don’t know what caused his confusion and led to him going off the trail. This might have been avoided if he had not been hiking solo???
