A 53-year-old hiker was found Sunday afternoon after going missing Saturday night in Pico Canyon near Mentryville Park.
The man was found and airlifted from the area around 5 p.m. Sunday after being missing for nearly 24 hours.
His condition is unknown.
The man was last seen Saturday April 8 around 5 p.m. and was identified as Alexander Yurichikov.
His wife described that he was dressed in head-to-toe camouflage.
The man’s white van was left in the parking lot of the park.
Search teams began looking for the man around midnight Saturday, authorities said.
Three dogs were among the 11 officers and two rangers searching for the missing hiker.
Two search dogs picked up a scent going up the side of the mountain and the SCV Search and Rescue Team found tracks of sneakers on the mountain.
The search and rescue team even brought in all terrain vehicles to continue their search.
A helicopter carried four members of the rescue and search team into the Santa Monica Mountains on Sunday afternoon try where they eventually found the missing hiker.
