I've just been made aware that Sam Kim the 78 year old hiker that has 700 summits of Mount Baldy has been missing since Sat morning on the mountain. If anyone has news of seeing him on Sat please reach out to SAR, there's at least 18 - 20 folks out looking now. Word has it that he has a few shortcuts but I'm not aware of them, if you are friends with Sam an have hiked with him please let us know if you know any of those shortcuts? Thanks, hope they find him soon.

I am sorry to report he was found deceased this afternoon. No details available at this time.
How can I be lost if I don't care where I am?

Thank you RMRU Pete for the update.

Just received news from another hiking friend who went to help search that Sam was found deceased by SAR on the north side of Baldy. Sam is on the left in the photo below.

The Los Angeles Times interviewed him and other hikers.

LA Times article by Ben Poston, the same reporter that wrote about Sam in December in last year.
