On September 30th, at approximately 10pm Coquitlam Search and Rescue received a call for a young lady who was lost on the Diez Vistas trail. The subject had set off alone up the Diez Vistas trail with only her photography gear.
After discovering a bear on the trail the subject became disorientated and made the good decision to call her family for help. As darkness fell she used her cell phone to call her family. She transmitted her coordinates with the use of a navigational app that was on her phone.
Unfortunately, she did not have any food, water, whistle or clothing with her so she was cold and uncomfortable when rescuers found her. Please remember, when you go out hiking to take the 10 Essentials as you never know when you will need it.
After a careful hike down the switch backs on Diaz Vistas, the young lady was reunited with her family who was very happy to see her.
