Two San Bruno Hunters Rescued After Reported Missing in Forest

The pair had been missing for more than eight hours in the Mendocino National Forest.

Two hunters from San Bruno who were reported missing in the Mendocino National Forest have been located, the Glenn County Sheriff's Office said.

KNVN TV reported earlier today that a search was under way for Luis Gerardo Magallon and Deniesse Alejandra Rivera-Prado, both 24, who had been missing since around midnight.

Glenn County Sheriff Larry Jones said a search and rescue team, comprised of Glenn County sheriff's officers and Mendicino County authorities, was dispatched this morning. The pair were found in good condition at about 1 p.m. high up in the forest around Plaskett Meadows by a U.S. Forest Serive officer, Jones said.

Both were reportedly dressed well for lower temperatures, and they had a bottle of water, candy bars and 20 rounds of ammo for a hunting rifle with them.

Jones said the search and rescue team is now on its way to bring the pair to safety.
