Once there was a break in the rain, the Oregon Army National Guard flew out a helicopter to locate the hikers “from the air,” said spokesman Deputy Nate Thompson, who’d deployed 50 searchers in the area.
Jackson Chandler, 17 and Bradley Nelson, 16, from West Linn in Oregon have been missing since Saturday after they went for a hike in the Table Rock area east of Molalla River Corridor, reports ABC News.
“They’re both experienced hikers,” Nate Thompson of the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said, “They’re both Boy Scouts. We’re hoping they have enough gear and have enough training to keep themselves dry in this weather.”
Their pickup truck was found in Lost Creek Meadow, which is east of Table Rock Trail by several miles. Anyone who has seen them or has additional information was asked to call police.
