King County searchers are looking for an overdue hiker in the central Cascades.

A King County Sheriff's Office spokesperson said John Wright, 50, of University Place went hiking Friday by himself in the Cedar Falls Watershed area.

He was supposed to return to pick up his daughter around 6:30 p.m. His wife received a call about 20 minutes after that from her daughter saying he hadn’t picked her up.

The search began Saturday morning. Wright's car was found at the Middle Fork Trailhead off Exit 34 along Interstate 90.
