HFD resumes search for hikers in Pearl City

PEARL CITY (HawaiiNewsNow) - A couple of lost hikers are stranded in the mountains above Pearl City.

According to Honolulu Fire Department officials, a man and his father-in-law were reported lost on the Waimano Trail.

Officials say the hikers are not hurt and are in contact with family and rescue crews.

Weather conditions and lack of light prevented HFD crews from reaching the hikers.

Rescue crews resumed their search at daylight.

According to HFD Capt. Terry Seelig, low clouds are preventing crews from flying up to rescue the pair.

Officials say the hikers are closer to the ridge than the trail.

We'll have more details on this story as they become available.
