Jerren Fisher has been found alive and was airlifted to safety by the U.S. Coast Guard

According to The News Tribune,

A U.S. Coast air crew located missing hiker Jerren Fisher late Sunday, September 19, 2021, in Olympic National Park. He had been missing since Thursday according to the National Park Service.

Searchers found Fisher, 26, in a ravine near Mt. Olson, according to statement posted on social media.

Fisher’s location required air assistance. Apart from minor scrapes and cuts, he was reported to be in good spirits.

Before the rescue, his last known location was the Graves Creek Trailhead in the Quinault Rain Forest.

Fisher had a wilderness permit for Sept. 8-12 and was planning on camping at Enchanted Valley, Marmot Lake, Camp Pleasant, and Sundown Lake before returning to his vehicle via Graves Creek Trailhead, according to a news release.

A family member reported Fisher overdue to park dispatch on Thursday. Crews searched for him Friday and Saturday, including at Wynoochee Pass Trail and the switchbacks in the Seven Stream area, according to the release.

    About Missing NPF

    There is currently no centralized database for those who have gone missing in National Parks and/or Forests at the federal level.

    We have established this listing in an effort to provide a holistic measure of assistance, both to inform future search efforts and to establish an assistive resource for those who are currently living with the loss of a loved one. 

    Missing NPF supports the call for federal agencies to establish, maintain, and share a full listing of those missing in U.S. National Parks and Forests. Meanwhile, we have established our own, and seek your collaboration in providing a meaningfully-detailed source by which to expand public knowledge, identify trends, and empower future search efforts. Join us on this mission.
