LA CRESCENTA, Calif. (CNS) -- Angeles National Forest officials on Friday announced an investigation into the possible unauthorized entry into a federally closed burn area by a 45-year-old hiker who became lost in the area. Rene Compean of Palmdale was reported missing about 6 p.m. Monday when a friend called the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station after receiving a text message from Compean stating that he was lost and his cellphone was dying, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Compean sent his friend a picture earlier in the hike from a trail with a burn area near a mountain.
