Previous: A 73-year-old hiker from Arcadia who left Chantry Flat Saturday morning and has yet to return has triggered a search effort from the Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team and the Sheriff's Department Sunday morning. Authorities are searching the Chantry Flat area along with areas around Mount Wilson, with aid from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station.
"He normally does these day trips (to Mount Wilson) every Saturday," said Lt. Tom McNeil of the Temple City Station, which watches the Chantry Flat area. "We don't know if he ever made it up the mountain … we're assuming he did, since it's part of his routine."
Patch will follow up with the search. Check back for any updates.
