MOUNT SHASTA, Calif. — The search for a 69-year-old hiker missing for almost a week on Mt. Shasta intensified Friday as a state helicopter dropped searchers on the upper slopes of the mountain.
Carl H. Landers of Orinda was last seen in the Lake Helen area near the 10,000-foot level last Saturday morning.
Landers, an avid hiker, was attempting to scale the highest mountain in every county in California. He was climbing with two other hikers when they became separated.
