Searchers found missing hikers Rommel and Marisol Pompa in a remote area of Kings Canyon National Park late on Wednesday afternoon. Both were in good condition. Five rescuers assisted the couple on Wednesday evening and hiked out with them yesterday. The Pompas’ wilderness permit indicated that they planned to hike the Rae Lakes Loop, departing from Cedar Grove on September 25th via the Woods Creek trail and returning September 29th on the Bubbs Creek trail. Information from other hikers helped to focus the search area. The Charlotte Creek drainage, where searchers found them, is within the area of their intended route.

In addition to teams on foot, searchers used the park helicopter and horse patrols.
