    Yes it looks like the Superstition Mountains and the LDM claimed another 3 lives. When are people going to learn that you do not go out there in the summer months?
    One of the three had to be rescued last year also and did not learn a thing from his past experience.
    I feel sympathy for their families and their loss.
    Not only do they endanger themselves by going out at this time of the year but the rescue personnel put their lives in danger trying to find them.

    Re: Missing Hikers

    My question is are they even looking in the right area? Someone mentioned the hikers had John V Kemms map allegedly pinpointing the LDM...



    Has anyone surveyed this particular area before? Perhaps they found the LDM and were killed as speculated with Jesse Capen.

    Not smart to try something like this at the hottest time of the year.

    Re: Missing Hikers

    They are still missing without a trace. Its kind of odd that all 3 would have vanished at the same time, but try this simple exercise.

    1) Make sure you have some sort of medical condition that requires daily medication.

    2) Hike from First Water into the Boulder Basin area on a 110 degree day

    3) Dont take alot of water with you , cause you are coming back out that same day

    4) Get lost.

    See how that goes.....

    Those guys are, I am sorry to say, gone. Thats 4 within a year.

    I am not familiar with this area or treasure hunting for the LDM..but is it also possible that just maybe they did find something and it was booby trapped? just weird not a thing on even finding their remains. Either way, prayers out to their families..

    I guess anything is possible, but I think the odds would be much higher that they came across a cave, old mine shaft, etc... and all decided to go in for a look and didn't get out for one reason or another.

    I hope for the families sake that if they didn't survive, at least their remains are found one of these days - not ever knowing has to be devastating every day.

    They are still encouraging people to look out for the men though.

    Not called off, but dramatically scaled back.

    Lots of locals also still going out looking.

    Re: Missing Hikers

    Age's 67,62,51, two with medical conditions and 110 degrees, at first glance not the intelligence of a 12 year old between them, a tragedy. Maybe we do not know the whole story.
