On Feb. 4 around 11:15 p.m., it was reported to the Fontana Sheriff’s Station that Lifei Huang was missing after going for a hike in the Mt. Baldy area of the San Gabriel Mountains, according to a press release from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

According to the release, Huang went to take a hike around 2 p.m. and was last heard from around 4 p.m. that same day.

On Feb. 5 around 2:30 a.m., the Sheriff’s West Valley Search and Rescue Crew began to search for Huang. On Feb. 6, search and rescue crews were pulled off the mountain due to extremely heavy snowfall and avalanche risks, according to the release.

According to a Facebook post from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, the U.S. Forestry Department notified the sheriff’s department that Huang may have been spotted by a citizen’s drone, that was being flown in the area on Feb. 10 just before 3:30 p.m.

Sheriff’s Air Rescue hoisted medics down to the location where she was found on Feb. 11. Her body was then airlifted off the mountain, according to the department.

“The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department strongly urges everyone to stay away and refrain from mountain activities during this inclement weather. The weather has effectively buried the mountain in snow and it is highly likely hikers will get into trouble.  Resources are stretched to their limits and hikers who get lost may have to wait long periods of time before help is available,” the department said on Facebook.
