About Michael Dahl's case

Michael Dahl was hiking the Lower Yosemite Falls Trail with friends on March 21, 2015, the day he disappeared. When Michael’s friends noticed he was missing, they spent 2 hours searching for Michael before notifying the park rangers.

On March 23, 2015, a park visitor noticed some movement out of the corner of his eye, and spotted Michael who was about a quarter-mile east of the Lower Yosemite Falls Trail, below Sunnyside Bench.

Michael sustained serious injuries from a fall and was taken to the hospital where he was able to make a recovery.
