PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

A mother and daughter hiking pair have been rescued after spending the night on Mount Hood.

Tony Hobkirk, a volunteer rescuer with Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue, said by phone Tuesday that the hikers were in good condition but tired.

A man called authorities around 7 p.m. Monday to say his wife and daughter were missing. Their cellphones were dead.

Hobkirk says the mother and her adult daughter were planning to take a multiday hike and were prepared to spend the night outdoors.

They encountered heavy waters at the bottom of Zig Zag Canyon and weren't able to cross them to continue their hike.

He says they had apparently planned to hike from Timberline Lodge to Cascade Locks on the Pacific Crest Trail.
