MT. BAKER-SNOQUALMIE NATIONAL FOREST, Wash. – On Wednesday, the Search and Rescue Unit and volunteers from Everett Mountain Rescue rescued a 24-year old male just north of Johnson Ridge. The adult male became lost while returning from a day hike to Sunrise Mountain, about 6 miles north of SR2 in eastern Snohomish County. He called 911 around 9:20 p.m. and his coordinates were received. A four-person team from Everett Mountain Rescue reached the man and his dog around 1 a.m. and escorted him back to the trailhead.
