Missing hikers on Mount Tamalpais found

MARIN COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- A hiker reported missing on Mount Tamalpais above Stinson Beach Tuesday morning has been found.

The woman named Jen is being questioned by authorities.

Another hiker who went looking for her last night had been reported missing, but he was found safe earlier Tuesday morning.

The ground search for the male and female hikers started at 2:30 a.m. and a California Highway Patrol helicopter crew joined the effort using thermal imaging devices an hour later, National Park Service spokeswoman Alexandra Picavet said.

The park service had 10 searchers on the ground in addition to the Southern Marin County Fire Department's search and rescue team, Picavet said.

She said the search, which also included the U.S. Coast Guard, was concentrated in the Red Rock area of Mt. Tamalpais State Park.
