He’s Alive! Missing 63-Year-Old Hiker Reappears Not Far From Bigfoot Trail Where He Began
Two weeks ago yesterday, Ashley Ura and a family member arrived in the Hayfork area to resupply her father, 63-year-old David Ura, who was hiking the new Bigfoot Trail with Ashley’s dog Kingsley. He never arrived.
Since then Ashley and her family have been trying to locate him. They’ve reached out via social media and news media to make sure that fellow hikers knew to look for him. A helicopter flew the area. And they worked with friends of David to coordinate searches.
Today, David Ura was found alive in Mendocino National Forest in Tehama County.
[County]. Miles from his intended hiking area. We’ll update when we learn more.
Ashley posted on her Facebook page, “EVERYONE!!! MY FAMILY AND I FOUND MY DAD AND DOG!!! With everyone’s hope and prayers! We were able to find my dad!! Thank you so much to everyone that participated in spreading the word, donated, helped with the search to look for my dad!”Earlier Chapter: Family Asks Public’s Help After 63-Year-Old Hiker Disappears on New Bigfoot Trail
