Five UAS students rescued on West Glacier Trail

Authorities say five students from the University of Alaska Southeast were rescued on Sunday morning after getting lost hiking the West Glacier Trail.

The students were hiking down from the Mendenhall Glacier ice caves, went off trail in the dark and became lost, Alaska State Troopers said in an online dispatch. The initial call came in at about 8 p.m. Saturday.

Troopers coordinated the search and requested assistance from the Juneau Mountain Rescue squad. The dispatch states JMR began searching for the group at about 11:30 p.m., located them and had the group back at the trailhead by about 3:20 a.m. Sunday.

The dispatch states the students were all women: a 19-year-old from West Virginia, a 31-year-old from California, a 24-year-old from Great Britain and a 20- and 32-year-old, both from France.
