Hikers in trouble on Pacific Crest Trail

The Associated Press

STEVENSON, Skamania County — Three hikers who have walked from Mexico on the Pacific Coast Trail are in trouble after hitting snow in Southwest Washington.

The Skamania County sheriff’s office says it has two search-and-rescue operations under way for the three trail hikers who needed help Monday, plus another search for a Portland hiker who has been missing since Saturday.

The sheriff’s office says searchers have cell phone contact with Matt Margiotta and Kyla Arnold and a crew is headed to their location.

The sheriff’s office says it is trying to locate Alejandre Wilson, who was reported overdue by her father on the trail to Canada.

And the search continues for the 31-year-old Portland man, Kristopher Zitzewitz, who became separated Saturday from his partner in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
