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.
