Two women hikers are rescued in the Three Sisters Wilderness after wandering off a trail and becoming disoriented, due to the snow drifts in the area.  Melissa Keal, 21, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Kendra Seblett, 21, of Elkview, West Virginia called 911 on their cell phones just before 4 p-m Friday when they realized they were lost.  About seven members of the Deschutes County Search and Rescue mobilized and found the pair about three quarters of a mile southeast of Moraine Lake around 7:30 Friday night. SAR was able to locate the pair by the pings from their cell phones.

 

SAR reminds everyone who wants to hike or recreate in the backcountry to always carry essential items including extra food and water, a compass or GPS, extra clothing and other items.
