Teens lost near Table Rock Wilderness found in good condition

Jackson Chandler, 17, and Bradley Nelson, 16, two teens lost in the Cascade Mountains near the Table Rock Wilderness over the weekend, were found Monday afternoon.
They left their homes in West Linn to day hike in the Table Rock Wilderness area Saturday afternoon and did not return. According to reports, about 50 people searched for them on Monday, aided by an Oregon Air National Guard helicopter.

The pair did not need medical attention when they were located at about 2 p.m. Monday.
Both boys are in the Boy Scouts, have multiple outdoor and survival skill merit badges and are working on becoming Eagle Scouts, a family spokesperson said. It was their first hike into the Table Rock area.

Hunters found the boys' truck Sunday afternoon along the side of the road near the Lost Creek Meadow area about five miles east of the Table Rock Wilderness.
