Earlier this month, Suburban Water Systems and Forest Service staff teamed up to repot 500 tree seedlings at the San Gabriel Canyon Environmental Education Center. The seedlings will be planted at Crystal Lake and various other locations to improve the stands’ forest health, sequester carbon as it grows, and provide habitat for those species needing shade or trees.

As of this Thursday morning, Icehouse Canyon Trail closure has been lifted since the missing hikers have been found.

Both Mt Baldy hikers found alive! Rescue operation underway! #MiracleOnMtBaldy!

Following an intensive search, search and rescues crews have located the two missing Mt. Baldy hikers.

**LOCATED**

This evening a search team in Cucamonga Canyon found two sets of footprints and began following them. The search team alerted the command post and provided coordinates for the Sheriff’s helicopter, 40King, to fly over the area. The aviation crew spotted a camp fire and two people who they believed were the two missing hikers, Eric Desplinter and Gabrielle Wallace. The crew is preparing for a hoist rescue and will hoist them out one at a time. It is confirmed these were the two hikers that had been lost for nearly five days.
Eric and Gabrielle will be flown to the Mt. Baldy Fire Station where they will be reunited with their families and loved ones, then evaluated by paramedics to determine if they need further treatment at a local hospital.
This search was successful in part to the many Search & Rescue teams that volunteered their time to comb the mountain covering 30 square miles (19,000 acres). Many thanks to all the agencies that provided resources to San Bernardino: Los Angeles, Riverside, Kern, San Diego and Orange Counties.

‘Volunteers are a real blessing to our agencies, providing thousands of hours giving back to make our communities better and stronger, stated Sheriff John McMahon. This is a perfect example of their commitment.’

04/11/2019

Due to ongoing search and rescue efforts to locate two missing hikers, the Icehouse Canyon Trail will be closed until further notice.

The Search and Rescue operation continues for two missing hikers in the Mount Baldy area. If anyone has seen Eric or Gabrielle please contact San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department Dispatch immediately at (909) 387-8313.

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 -

The search continues with five search teams deployed( 3 members on each team). Four of the teams are Alpine Search teams.
The search teams include members from San Bernardino Co, Orange Co., Los Angeles Co. and San Diego Co.
The winds gusts are too strong for the helicopters to insert the search teams, but will be conducting fly over search efforts throughout the day.
The areas of focus are: Cucamonga Peak, Cucamonga Canyon and Kellys Camp
Two of the teams are staying overnight in the Cucamonga Canyon & Cucamonga Peak areas.
Two K9 search teams will be arriving this morning to assist with the search.

Earlier reports stated Eric Desplinter and Gabrielle Wallace had not hiked Mt. Baldy before. That information is incorrect and we have learned that both Eric & Gabrielle have previously hiked different areas of Mt. Baldy.

Updates will be issued as new information becomes available.
