Iowa hiker reported missing in Oregon

Posted:

PORTLAND, OREGON (AP) -- Search and rescue crews are looking for a pair of men, including an Iowa man, overdue from a planned hike to Bagby Hot Springs in the Mount Hood National Forest.

Sheriff's deputies from Marion and Clackamas counties were joined Thursday by Portland Mountain Rescue volunteers. Search teams made camp Thursday night where they were when darkness fell and planned to resume the search Friday.

The Oregon National Guard plans to join the search with helicopters if weather permits.

Marion County sheriff's spokesman Don Thomson says the hikers are a 35-year-old Hillsboro man and a man in his 20s visiting from Iowa. One of their wives called when the men didn't return Wednesday.

Thomson says the men took sleeping bags, maps, compasses, cell phones, warm clothing and food. They are traveling with two Labrador retrievers and a pit bull.
