Hikers stranded in the Sandias were found and rescued this past weekend, according to a press release from Bernalillo County Capt. Joshua Kingsbury.

Kingsbury said the sheriff’s department “launched our helicopter” to help find two groups of stranded hikers, one near the crest and one on the La Luz Trail. “We were able to locate the groups and relayed coordinates to the responding agencies,” Kingsbury said.
