Rescuers to search for hikers in San Gabriel Mountains

Los Angeles County rescuers were hoping to find four adults Thursday morning who were presumed stranded in the San Gabriel Mountains after they went hiking in the rain.

The hikers are believed to be in the Heaton Flats area above Glendora, the county Sheriff's Department said.

The hikers, Orange County residents ranging in age from 23 to 34, have been holed up in the area since Sunday, authorities said.

Weather permitting, search teams and two helicopters will begin scouring the area in the morning, the department said.
