All’s well that ended well on May 9 for a two back-country hikers who became the subjects of a Chelan County Search and Rescue operation.

Undersheriff Jason Mathews says the two hikers were reported missing in the Enchantments but were able to find their way out.

“We had a good response with Mountain Rescue and our helicopter, we actually inserted a couple rescue teams,” Mathews said. “About the time we inserted our rescue teams, the two people we were looking for walked out. We did have a response and we did have a good deployment.”
