Hiker vanishes over edge in Alpine Lakes Wilderness; Chelan County suspends search
LEAVENWORTH, Wash. (AP) — The Chelan County Sheriff's Office says it has suspended the search for a hiker who vanished over the edge of a waterfall hole while sliding down Aasgard Pass in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Sheriff Brian Burnett says several people were glissading down the snow Sunday night when a 24-year-old man who was in front plunged over the edge and into the rushing water below. The water flows back underneath the snow, and there was no sign of the man.
