Crews Search For Missing Hiker On Mount Baldy

MOUNT BALDY VILLAGE, Calif. (AP) — Rescue crews are looking for a hiker who vanished over the weekend on Mount Baldy in San Bernardino County.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise says a sheriff's helicopter is looking for 49-year-old Michelle Yu, who failed to return Saturday from a hike on the mountain about 40 miles east of Los Angeles. Searchers can't reach her by cell phone and believe she may be injured.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Arden Wiltshire says Yu had food and water with her but was planning only a day hike and wasn't dressed for the storm that hit the mountain with rain, wind and snow Sunday night.
