Walker, a white male standing at 5 feet 11 inches and weighing approximately 165 pounds, was last seen dressed for his hiking expedition. He wore a gray shirt, dark-colored shorts, gray socks, brown boots, and a brown hat. He was also equipped with hiking sticks and a large green backpack.

Walker’s disappearance triggered a significant search and rescue operation; including teams from the Sierra Madre and Montrose Search and Rescue, alongside select members from the South Pasadena Police Department, are scouring the difficult terrain on foot. Aerial support is also being provided.

Complicating the search efforts are the severe heat conditions and has rendered the area particularly hazardous. For safety considerations, the operation has been restricted to professional rescue personnel, excluding volunteer assistance for the time being.

The South Pasadena Police Department may release an updated report on the ongoing search later today. We at The South Pasadenan are committed to providing you with the most recent and accurate updates as this situation unfolds.

As our community hopes for Walker’s safe return, our thoughts are with his family during this challenging time.
