The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office conducted a search and rescue operation for a hiker in the Bull of the Woods Wilderness area of the Mt. Hood National Forest.

On Saturday June 24, 2017 at about 7:45 PM, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) received a report of a lost hiker in the Bull of the Woods Wilderness area. The hiker camped in the area the night before, hiked during the day, and then became lost in a canyon for several hours. The hiker texted a friend who then called the Sheriff's Office.

Search and Rescue personnel were on foot in the area of the hiker's last known cell phone location since last night after finding the hiker's vehicle still parked in the area.

At about 1:30 PM on June 25, the hiker was located on a slope and was escorted back to the parking area. The hiker was not injured and declined medical treatment.
