About 11am Sunday (4/14) morning, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a friend that reported a 53-year-old male had not returned from driving his CanAm in the Black Mountains. He was driving a separate vehicle from her husband yesterday near Secret Pass, when they had become separated. Her husband returned home this morning, but had no idea where their friend was at. After some investigation, Search and Rescue was activated and began a route and location search of the area. The Western Air Rescue DPS helicopter from Kingman began an aerial search of Secret Pass. In the meantime, good Samaritans came across him at the west end of Secret Pass and contacted the Sheriff’s Office. Ground teams met another group in the area, that had also seen him. The DPS helicopter located him and landed to make an assessment. He had ran out of fuel, had no water or food – but was otherwise okay. He was transported back to the Command Post where he was reunited with his friends. Search and Rescue wants to remind everyone when recreating in the remote and rugged wilderness areas of Mohave County, to make sure you bring plenty of supplies and make sure you stick together as a group when traveling. Great job by everyone!
