6/5 Missing Hiker Alert (Unresolved)

Yosemite NP:

We need your help! Today, June 5, at approximately 12:30 pm, an unknown, white, male hiker was reported to have fallen from the Mist Trail and into the Merced River. The hiker may be in his twenties with a blue shirt and red or tan shorts. He was described as 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a shaved or bald head, and carrying a hiking pole but no backpack.

If you witnessed this incident on the Mist Trail or have any information regarding this individual, please contact Yosemite National Park Dispatch at 209/379-1992.

UPDATE: The individual has been identified and Yosemite Search and Rescue continues to search for him. We will not be releasing his name at this time. If you witnessed the incident, please contact Yosemite National Park Dispatch at 209/379-1992.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org
