Distracting Headlines

Report: As many as 8 people may be involved in avalanche in Scottish Highlands - @STVNews

"Involved"?  What does that mean?

Does that mean "buried" or "trapped"?  And if so, why not say that?

Unless the headline is saying that these 8 people started the avalanche.  But if that's the case, then the headline should say that.
