Man Reported Missing After Hike With Son in Angeles National Forest Found Safe

A man who was reported missing after he went on a hike with his son in the Angeles National Forest has been found safe.

The 58-year-old man went on a hike with his son Sunday, and when the son wanted to go higher, the father stayed behind. Montrose Search and Rescue officials told KTLA.

The son said he'd meet his father at the bottom, but his dad wasn't there when he returned from the hike. Authorities began searching for the hiker around 8 p.m. Sunday.

After searching for the hiker overnight and into Monday morning, authorities received a call from the man saying he was safe. He had apparently gotten a ride out of the area sometime overnight.

No further details, including the man's name, have been released. The son did not want to be identified.
