Hunter missing in Sequoia forest

October 14, 2008|From the Associated Press

Forty rescue workers from two counties were searching for a 27-year-old hunter in Sequoia National Forest.

Salvador Sanchez of Orosi hiked with another man toward Deer Meadow about 5 p.m. Saturday to scout potential hunting locations while a third man stayed with their vehicle. The hikers became separated and Sanchez never returned. Nearby campers called the Tulare County Sheriff's Department about 10:30 p.m.

The temperature Saturday night dipped to about 9 degrees and was expected to be in the 20s Monday night. Sanchez had a jacket, cellphone and rifle but no food or water.
