Missing hiker from Pennsylvania walks into Stehekin

The Wenatchee World

WENATCHEE – A 25-year-old Pennsylvania man, who was overdue by a week on the Pacific Crest Trail, walked into Stehekin today.

He was tired and hungry, said John Wisemore, Chelan County undersheriff. He apparently did not bring enough food for the leg of the trip between Stevens Pass and Stehekin.

Ian Farmento of Honeytown, Penn, which is near Scranton, was hiking the trail from Mexico and had been expected in Stehekin Oct. 22. He was last seen on Oct. 19 near North Indian Pass, which is about eight miles south of Glacier Peak. Wisemore said he walked into Stehekin about 2 p.m. today.
