Missing hikers found

UPDATE: 3:30 p.m.

Two missing hikers have been found safe near Lions Bay. 

Searchers scoured the area north of Vancouver on Wednesday, but the hikers managed to make their own way to safety.

They spent the night in a cave before hiking down a mountain to the highway, where a passing driver picked them up.

The young women were cold and hungry but uninjured.

 


ORIGINAL: 8:30 a.m.

Two young women have gone missing near Lions Bay and rescuers have now begun searching the mountainous area surrounding the Sea-to Sky Highway.

The two women, both 19 years old, did not return home after heading out on the hike Tuesday.

Searchers indicate the last contact was a ping from one of their cell phones Tuesday night and they are concerned the pair may be suffering from hypothermia after spending the night outdoors.
