Rescuers find lost Devil's Head hikers

Drone helped locate two men and dog in Pike National Forest


Douglas County Search and Rescue found two hikers and their dog who had become lost after accidentally leaving a trail in the Devil's Head area of the Pike National Forest on June 15.

The two men had hiked through the area for several hours. They called 911 as nightfall approached and they were unequipped to remain out overnight, a release said. Search and rescue crews responded at approximately 4:15 p.m. and made visual contact with the men and their dog using a drone at 6:20 p.m.

A search team went out on foot and soon after, found the men and their dog uninjured.
