Search suspended for missing Pacific Crest Trail hiker

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - Kittitas County authorities have suspended a search for a Pacific Crest Trail hiker who was last seen nearly a month ago.
    
The Yakima Herald-Republic reports (http://bit.ly/2faTBS3 ) that the sheriff's office says search teams have covered sections of the trail that run through Kittitas County between Yakima, King and Chelan counties but have found no sign of 34-year-old Kris Fowler.
    
The Beavercreek, Ohio man's last confirmed sighting was Oct. 12 at White Pass.
    
His family reported him missing after not hearing from him and learning his cellphone had not been used for more than a week.
    
Fowler was hiking the full 2,660-mile Pacific Crest Trail, which begins in Southern California near the Mexico border and ends in Canada.

    What's the first thing you would do if you had a pet translator and you could understand your dog or cat? I'd probably immediately let my cat know how sorry I am for stepping on her tail all those times. Recent advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning suggest the dream of communicating with your pets could become a reality.
