Yosemite National Park Searches for Missing Visitor - news release
Michael “Mic” Dahl, 20, Missing Since Saturday, March 21

Yosemite National Park Rangers and search volunteers continue to search for Michael “Mic” Dahl, a 20 year old male, from southern California. Dahl, has been missing since Saturday morning, March 21, 2015. A student at University of California, Santa Barbara, Dahl arrived in Yosemite on the morning of Saturday, March 21, with three friends. He was discovered missing by his friends after a planned day hike.

At approximately 10:00 a.m., Dahl and his friends walked the paved path to Lower Yosemite Fall. The group began “scrambling” on the rocky area just below the Lower Fall, when they noticed Dahl was missing. After searching for Dahl for approximately two hours, they reported him missing to Yosemite Valley Rangers.
