RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. (AP) — Search crews looking for an 18-year-old woman missing since Sunday in a Southern California forest are responding to a hiker's report of hearing a female voice, but officials caution that there have been multiple similar reports in the past.
Orange County sheriff's Lt. Jason Park says crews are responding late Thursday morning but officials don't want such information to create false hope.
Kyndall Jack has been missing for days in the Trabuco Canyon area of Cleveland National Forest after setting out on a hike with 19-year-old companion Nicolas Cendoya, who made a 911 call for help Sunday night. He was found in very serious condition from dehydration Wednesday night.
Hospital officials say he's doing better Thursday but his condition is still serious.
