Late Sunday night my pager went off for two missing females in Lynn Headwaters Park.
We found them within a few hours and they were doing well.

NORTH VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Two hikers are safe today after getting lost in the North Shore Mountains. The 22-year old women were following the Lynn Loop Trail in Lynn Headwaters when they got caught in the dark.
Don Jardine with North Shore Rescue says it can happen when sunshine draws people to the great outdoors. He says there has been a lot of people hiking in that area all weekend. He says if you do get caught overnight and you’re lost, just stop, use your cell phone if you have one and wait for someone to get you.
Jardine says because it does get dark earlier, hikers should plan to be back at the parking lot before dark or take a flashlight with them. Both women are okay and not hypothermic.
