@ This Hour: Search Continues For Washington State Trooper In North Cascades
WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) - Weather permitting, a helicopter will take ground searchers into the North Cascades on Tuesday to look for an off-duty Washington State Patrol trooper missing on a hike.
KIRO-TV reports searchers have a destination because Daniel Anderson sent his coordinates Sunday with an emergency signal.
The 46-year-old Marysville man started off Friday snowshoeing with friends but was on his own when he signaled for help in the Lyman Lakes area. Searchers with the Snohomish and Chelan county sheriff's offices have responded.
The patrol says Anderson has been a trooper for 21 years and works as out of the Marysville office as a motorcycle trooper. He is described as an avid hiker who is well prepared with food, clothing and equipment.
