The search for missing hikers in Mt. Baldy continues with five search teams & K9's deployed

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 -

The search continues with five search teams deployed( 3 members on each team). Four of the teams are Alpine Search teams.

The search teams include members from San Bernardino Co, Kern Co., Orange Co., Los Angeles Co. and San Diego Co.

The winds gusts were too strong for the helicopters to insert the search teams, but will be conducting aerial searches throughout the day.

The areas of focus are: Cucamonga Peak, Cucamonga Canyon and Kellys Camp

Two of the teams are staying overnight in the Cucamonga Canyon & Cucamonga Peak areas.

Two K9 search teams are assisting with the search.


Earlier reports stated Eric Desplinter and Gabrielle Wallace had not hiked Mt. Baldy before. That information is incorrect and we have learned that both Eric & Gabrielle have previously hiked different areas of Mt. Baldy.


Updates will be issued as new information becomes available.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Sheriff's dispatch at (909)387-8313.
