Search teams continue looking for Arizona hiker missing on Mount Hood

Authorities are still trying to find an Arizona man who went missing during a hike in Oregon, officials said Thursday.

David Yaghmourian, 30, from Glendale, has been missing since Monday, the last day of his hike on Mount Hood in Oregon, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office. 

Search parties are still being sent out during the day in areas with an elevation of 4500-7500 feet near Mount Hood and the Pacific Crest Trail, said Sgt. Brian Jensen.

According to the sheriff’s office, Yaghmourian injured his leg and stopped to rest before returning to Timberline Lodge while a friend, who he was hiking with, proceeded to the lodge.

He was last seen wearing a tan baseball cap, black Columbia jacket, tan pants, a large black backpack with red trim and what appeared to be a yellow towel on top on his pack.
