Search and Rescue helps couple down Wellsvilles

The Cache County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team came to the rescue of a couple of hikers Saturday night. The couple, in their early 30s, hiked to the top of the Wellsville Mountains above Mendon, then needed help getting down. The call for help came into the Sheriffs office at about 10 p.m. The searchers responded and climbed to the top of the Wellsvilles to locate the couple and help them down the mountain. By 6 a.m. the hikers were safely down. Sheriffs Lt. Chad Jensen says the couple was afraid to descend the mountain in the dark and were tired. Lt. Jensen said there were no injuries and the parties were continually able to communicate by cell phone.
