RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. (AP) - Helicopter crews are taking advantage of clear skies in the hunt for two hikers lost for days in Southern California's Cleveland National Forest.

Orange County Sheriff's Lt. Jason Park says searchers are focused Wednesday on an area where a glimmer of light was spotted the night before.

So far, nothing has been found in the area where mountain bikers glimpsed what they believed to be a light in heavy brush Tuesday night off of a trail.

A Los Angeles County sheriff's helicopter joined two smaller choppers from Orange and Riverside counties in the search.

Nineteen-year-old Nicholas Cendoya and 18-year-old Kyndall Jack were last heard from Sunday night.

Kyndall's father, Russ Jack, said he worried that after three days the pair might be dehydrated, but is optimistic they are alive.
