Friends and family of a missing hiker made a plea on social media asking for help locating him after he went missing during a solo Mount Adams hike this week.

Luckily, friends say he was found safe by a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter.

According to friends, he started the hike around 10 p.m. Thursday, June 27, and summited the mountain at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 28. His friends received their last text from him around this time, saying that he was starting his descent.

Since then, he had been missing and no contact could be made with his phone.

Yakima County Search and Rescue told KIRO 7 that they were actively searching for a missing hiker on Mount Adams, but could not confirm that it was the same man.
