  1. This is sad. Is there a suggestion they base jumped off the bridge and disappeared?


  2. I’m guessing the tides, Mike, but unclear, just like the hikers story.



  3. It has been reported to me that the three young men from Stockton have been found by USFS personnel and are safe & sound.


  4. This is good news Tim.


  5. Yes, safe and sound. Post updated. Woman who BASE jumped feared dead, but not confirmed. Her male companion is uninjured.
