Lost hikers rescued

A father and son were rescued Monday in a remote area north of Indian Arm, near Coquitlam.

The hikers departed Thursday and were expected to return Sunday, but spent an extra night in the woods after becoming lost in cold, rainy conditions.

​The men were hiking from Jones Creek to Norton Lake when they got disoriented.

They pitched their tent and used a satellite phone to call for help.

Coquitlam Search and Rescue members went in by land, water and helicopter, and spotted the missing men on a logging road Monday afternoon.

By then, they were already hiking out.

“They were very cold but in good spirits it seems,” SAR spokesman Mike Coyle told CTV.
