Missing Hiker Found in Yosemite National Park
Date: September 18, 2007

Ronald Hoggard, 58, from Corcoran, California, was located by ground searchers Monday morning at around 8:30am. Searchers found Mr. Hoggard mildly dehydrated but otherwise uninjured in the area of Taft Point near Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park.

Mr. Hoggard was reported missing to park officials on Saturday afternoon when he did not return from a day hike. Mr. Hoggard's truck was subsequently located at the Sentinel Dome/ Taft Point Trailhead off of the Glacier Point Road in Yosemite National Park. After an initial search effort which lasted through the night on Saturday, Yosemite park staff was joined by additional resources on Sunday morning for a large-scale search effort.

Approximately 70 searchers from counties throughout California, Yosemite and Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Parks, and DNC Parks and Resorts in Yosemite, Inc. participated in the search effort. Dog teams and helicopters were used as well. Participating search and rescue (SAR) teams included those from Fresno, Madera, Marin, Ventura, Tulare, Mono, Los Angeles, Mariposa, and San Bernadino Counties, along with China Lake SAR and Sierra Madre SAR. Yosemite National Park wishes to thank these cooperating search teams for their quick response and continued effort.
