Hiker in the Sierras located after four days in the mountains

October 29, 2012 - One of two men lost in California’s eastern Sierras during the last week, Matthew Hanson, has been located alive, according to KSEE 24 News.

Monday afternoon shortly before 3:30 p.m., H40, the CHP helicopter, discovered shoe tracks in the area of Cathedral Lake. Hanson then walked out to the open so he could be seen by the helicopter.

H40 was able to land nearby, and Hanson was able to walk to them. His condition appeared to be initially good.

Cathedral Lake is at an elevation of about 10,800 feet, and is within the original 130 square mile search area.
