DARRINGTON — Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies were searching Tuesday for two missing hikers at Downey Creek trailhead.

David James and Marshall “Buster” Cabe left on Aug. 16 and were expected to return this past Friday, according to a sheriff’s office release.

Anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked to call 911.

Several other groups joined the sheriff’s office search and rescue team to look for the men.
