    OR - Keith Hoover, 60, & Julie Swisher, 23, Siskiyou County, 26 Aug 2014

    Keith Hoover and Julie Swisher


    Rescuers search for missing hikers near California-Oregon border

    Law enforcement officials in Siskiyou County and southern Oregon are looking for a pair hikers gone missing in the area of Applegate Lake near the Oregon border. Keith Hoover, 60, and Julie Swisher, 23, were last seen on Tuesday with their black dog at Seattle Bar near the lake. The pair planned to hike the Frog Pond Gulch trail, but did not return on schedule Friday.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Is there a vehicle involved? Is Seattle Bar the name of an actual bar or is it something else?

    This story has a little more detail and indicates that they got lost.

    Jayme Lynch with the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office said Hoover was found in a cabin on the Azalea Trail around 3:00 p.m. Sunday. Swisher was about one mile away from there.

    Hoover was unable to make the hike out and was airlifted to the hospital.

    "The hiking trails apparently are kind of confusing I guess, so they kinda just walked around and then they doubled back and they were just trying to walk out and they were just uncertain of where they were," said Lynch Sunday evening.

    A friend of the pair says their dog, Blue, was also safe, happy and healthy Sunday evening.

    I read they got lost on the second day but managed to find a cabin. They had extra supplies and a water purifier.

    “They spent an additional two days trying to find the trail,” said Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Deputy Corp. Jeremiah LaRue. “That’s when they knew they were, in a sense, lost.”

    Fortunately, the two were able to find a cabin for shelter.

    Deputies say they were able to survive because they planned ahead. The two had apparently brought several days’ worth of food as well as a water purifier to stay hydrated.
