Hiker missing after 800-foot fall into water

TILLAMOOK, Ore. — A hiker from British Columbia is missing in Oregon after falling 800 feet from a cliff near Devil's Cauldron and into the Pacific Ocean below.

The Oregon State Police said Monday that search teams recovered the backpack of 51-year-old Joseph McDonald Lescene in the water Monday but have not found him.

A second hiker, 42-year-old Sarah Jones Lescene, was not injured.

Nearby hikers heard her screams and called 911. No foul play is suspected.

Devil's Cauldron is a sheer promontory along Oregon's Pacific Coast that is on a rugged oceanside trail popular with hikers.

It is about 90 miles (144 kilometers) northwest of Portland.
