Two separate parties of hikers became lost over the weekend. and thanks to GPS, were located fairly quickly. A pair of Bend teens were hiking near Mirror Lake, when they lost the trail due to snow cover. Around 4:30 p.m. Brandon Mallea and Emily Carpenter, both 19, called for help from the Deschutes County Sheriff; they had been lost for several hours. Search and Rescue were able to use the cell phone GPS “ping” to locate the couple around 8:00 p.m. Then, Ricky Rodrigues, 43, and Carins Hernandez, 34, both of Atlanta were lost in the Three Sisters Wilderness, south of South Sister around 2:45 p.m. They call 911, and Search and Rescue were able to locate the missing couple thanks again to the GPS “ping”. They were located in good condition around 6:30 p.m. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind you to always be prepared for your hike with a fully charged cell phone and extra food and water.
