North Shore Rescue locates missing Ontario hikers
North Shore Rescue located a pair of missing hikers from Toronto in the Grouse Mountain area on Sunday.
Anthony Lam and Roya Rasoulian had departed from the Rice Lake area around 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Their destination was unclear, but crews working Sunday determined they may have headed into the Hanes Valley, an eight to 10 hour hike leading to the top of Grouse.
Search manager Peter Haigh said the duo was eventually located near the Grouse end of the trail.
“They must have stopped overnight. We found a little fire. And they carried on walking this morning,” he said.
North Vancouver RCMP Sgt. Peter DeVries said the pair’s friends called police when they failed to check in on Saturday.
