Crews are resuming the search for one of two teenage hikers missing in Southern California's Cleveland National Forest, the morning after her male companion was found dehydrated and disoriented in heavy brush.

Searchers aided by a sheriff's helicopter with infrared sensors were on the scene early Thursday hoping to locate 18-year-old Kyndall Jack.

Her friend, 19-year-old Nicholas Cendoya, was discovered by another hiker Wednesday night and airlifted to a hospital.

He talked to paramedics but was confused, disoriented and struggled to answer questions about what had happened and where Jack might be.

Investigators hoped to get more direction on where to look for Jack, who was hiking with Cendoya Sunday when the pair made a 911 call from a dying cellphone and set off the search.
