No sign of hiker who fell from rim at Crater Lake

The Associated Press

CRATER LAKE NATIONAL PARK, Ore. — Crater Lake National Park rangers would like to find a hiker who was seen falling from the caldera rim surrounding the Oregon lake. They want to find out what happened to him and make sure he’s OK.

The man disappeared into trees on the slope Friday, and rangers and search and rescue teams from Douglas and Josephine counties searched the area while boats on Crater Lake and a helicopter also looked for him over the weekend.

All they found was a pair of sunglasses. The man may have continued north on the Pacific Coast Trail.

The hiker appeared to be a white man in his 40s, about 5-foot-10, 150 pounds with long hair and a full beard. He was wearing a knee brace.
