by Maverick02 » Thu Feb 22, 2018 9:15 pm

Info is requested from anyone who was in the Hetch Hetchy area on the 17th-18th-19th-20th, with particularly emphasis on the backpackers/hikers parking area and along the trail from Hetchy-Vernon-Jack Main-Eleanor drainage. Authorities request that you call/text the number below, whether you saw Alan or not, but were in the area on the dates listed above.
There is information, which points to Alan being on the trail, heading in to do the Vernon Lake Loop and possibly Laurel Lake on the way.

Any info you may have, please call/text the ISB Tip Line at 888-653-0009.

Found 2/23

Yosemite NP:
Alan Chow, the hiker missing in Yosemite National Park since Tuesday, February 20, has been found safe today. Chow, who was backpacking alone, was spotted from a National Park Service helicopter around Noon today above Wapama Fall in the Hetch Hetchy area after an extensive search the past several days. . He was transported to the Hetch Hetchy Ranger Station where he is doing well. Chow sustained minor injuries and has been reunited with family members

During the last several days, Chow stayed in his tent and was able to stay hydrated and had an adequate food supply. His preparedness and ability to make good decisions were key to his rescue and good health.

Yosemite National Park would like to thank the California Highway Patrol, Bay Area Mountain Rescue, California Office of Emergency Services, Marin County Search and Rescue, Tuolumne County Sheriffs Office, El Dorado County Sheriffs Office, Contra Costa County Search and Rescue, Southern California Winter Ski team,and YoDogs (search dogs).

Approximately 60 people participated in the search effort since Tuesday

The following user would like to thank Maverick02 for this post
