If there’s one thing the Los Alamos teen that went missing Sunday had going for her it was that she did many things right before she left for her hike down Red Dot Trail.
The most important thing, apparently, was that she let her parents know where she was, and she brought a cell phone with her. According to officials at the Los Alamos Fire Department, it was enough.
Deputy Chief Justin Grider said the rescue call came in around 2 p.m. Sunday. She called her parents and told them where she was. Though the battery in her phone died soon after, a rescue patrol on foot was able to pinpoint her location and bring her out before Sunday’s cold weather set in. Even though she had an unspecified foot injury, she was also able to walk out on her own.
“Crews were able to locate her after a few hours of searching, and when they found her, they were able to escort her up the side of the mountain,” Grider said.
