ANCHORAGE, Alaska — An Omak teenager was on the phone with her mother as she hiked alone on a mountain in Alaska, saying she was nervous about the slippery terrain before her mother heard a scream, and then silence. The 18-year-old had fallen 30 feet from a cliff.

The mother, Shelly LaGrou, said Tuesday that she waited, roughly 1,500 miles away at her Omak home to hear her daughter’s voice again.
