Lost Bridal Veil hiker found by MCSO commander
A commander with the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office is being credited with rescuing a day-tripper who got lost while hiking in Bridal Veil.
Sheriff's deputies received reports of a woman and her dog who got lost around 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 29, according to a news release.
The sheriff's office deployed the Green Hornets Trail Rescue Team to the scene, where searchers immediately began to outrace "approaching darkness and worsening weather conditions."
Green Hornet Cmdr. Monte Reiser spied the uninjured hiker and her pet around 6 p.m. and escorted them back to the temporary command base.
"She said that she is a very experienced hiker but got turned around due to the poor weather conditions and limited light," according to a news release.
Police say the hiker started her adventure at about 1:15 p.m. and got lost after hiking about 5 miles.
