Black Mt. Road Search

Black Mt. Road

Written by Glenn Hendersonn

We got a call to meet up at Hemet Ryan airbase to be flown in to a location near Black Mountain campground in the San Jacinto Mountains. Alex and I would be searching for John who has been missing since January 5 in Oceanside, California. His truck was located near the 7000’ level and had been covered in snow for weeks.

The truck had been found by US forestry personnel. The truck was empty and locked. We were flown in above the truck and started searching down to the truck. We located it and searched for a mile down the road to the end of the road.

We retraced our steps back to the truck and hiked another half mile past the truck to a clearing off the side of the road where Star 9, Sheriff’s helicopter, picked us up. We did not find any sign of our subject.
