Lost hiker found safe on Sumas Mountain

A search-and-rescue team was on alert after an Abbotsford woman was reported missing on Sumas Mountain last night (Tuesday), but she was located before they were needed.

Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the 22-year-old had gone for a hike at about 5:30 p.m. About 30 minutes later, she phoned a family member to say she was lost.

A police officer with a dog found her safe and unharmed on a trail at about 8:30 p.m. They were assisted by the Air One police helicopter.
