Hikers lost in the dark

North Shore Search and Rescue has been called out for a pair of lost hikers on Mount Seymour.

Crews were alerted around 5 p.m. Sunday when the hikers got off the trail while they were coming down from the viewpoint, reports CTV Vancouver.

The pair is uninjured, but it's believed they do not have a flashlight with them — leading them to call for help. They have been in touch with rescuers via text.

MIke Danks with NSR says this is a busy time of the year for them because hikers are not prepared for winter conditions.

“The temperatures have dropped and we have been getting icy conditions up in the mountains,” he said. “We highly recommend that people hiking this time of the season have microspikes with them.”
