Search parties are looking for an overdue hiker who hasn't been seen since he split from his hiking partner near Twin Lakes Sunday, Aug. 4, according to the Whatcom County Sheriff's Office.
Concrete resident Brian Proctor, 51, had been hiking with a friend near the Lone Jack Mine when the two became separated after hiking out in two different directions, Deputy Mark Jilk said.
Proctor didn't return to the Twin Lakes parking area, and he hasn't been seen or heard from since. Deputies, search and rescue volunteers from Whatcom and Skagit counties, and a U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter began searching for Proctor on Tuesday. On Wednesday, about 20 friends and volunteers joined the search.
As of Thursday evening, Proctor remained unaccounted for.
The Twin Lakes are at the end of a rough dirt road, about 6 1/2 miles northeast of the Shuksan DOT station off Mount Baker Highway.
