Two hikers to San Jacinto Peak were reported overdue. RMRU responded at 3:00pm Friday. No sign of the pair was found that night, and the search resumed on Saturday. Additional search agencies were called in because of the extreme cold. The hikers were discovered late Saturday in the Little Round Valley area and helicoptered out. Neither suffered seriously from the cold.
