Successful Coast Guard Rescue Mission In Washington

Crew Hoists Man From Steep Ravine After One Week After He Went Missing

The Coast Guard has rescued a missing hiker, Jerren Fisher, 26, near Six Mile trail in the southeast area of Olympic National Park. Fisher had been missing for a week since September 8. An Olympic National Park search and rescue team located Fisher at about 4:35 p.m. on Sunday. They had verbal contact with him but could not access the area due to the steep grade where he was trapped inside a ravine. At 5:10 pm, the Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles requested air rescue assistance. After arrival to the area, it took the aircrew about 30 minutes to locate the search party. Using a flashlight, the hiker was able to direct the helicopter to the area. Due to fuel constraints and the complexity of the rescue, another aircrew aboard a Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Astoria was also dispatched to the scene.
