    OR - Devin Paez, 26, Multnomah County, 25 Aug 2016

    http://www.kgw.com/news/local/texas-...hike/309243178

    Devin Paez, 26, of Austin, Texas, was at Sherrard Point and decided to return to the trailhead ahead of his party but never arrived there, according to the Multnomah County sheriff's office.

    A search was started after nearby parking lots were checked to see if he came out at a different trailhead. A command post was established at the Larch Mountain trailhead.

    "Devin Paez, a 26-year-old firefighter from Austin, Texas, was hiking with three friends at Sherrard Point when he decided to head back down the trail alone, leaving his gear behind..."

    From your link, its stated he left his gear behind. Seems rather odd!

    I found another article that might explain that: http://democratherald.com/news/state...d1068848b.html

    Alexander said Paez was "struggling a little bit" when the hikers reached Sherrard Point. He decided to leave his backpack behind, perhaps to reduce weight, and go ahead of the group late Thursday afternoon.


    A friend tried to catch up with Paez, but couldn't find him. The group waited at the Wahkeena Falls trailhead and called police when Paez didn't show after nightfall.

    Authorities say Paez was found shortly after 3 p.m. Friday on the Oneonta Trail by a hiker who recognized him from photos being shown on media coverage. Paez says his cellphone was dead when he slipped off the trail but a nearby creek provided water for him.
