You remember a few weeks ago when Sergeant Rob Huddleston of the Chelan County Sheriff's Office talked about personal responsibility and being prepared? Well, this story comes under that heading. It's that of a very lucky hiker who went out in the Grouse Mountan area and got lost. It happened Sunday and Monday. Huddleston picks up the story:

Huddleston describes the man as being in good shape, about 26 years old, who likes hiking and just lost his way. But he adds that they were close to having a full search effort underway, with a pilot on standby for a helicopter, a drone, search and rescue crews at the ready. Fortunately, they weren't needed.
