Altadena LASD Search And Rescue Continue to Search For 4 Missing Bicyclist In Angeles National Forest.
On Sunday, December 22, 2013, at approximately 7:00 P.M., the Altadena Search & Rescue team was activated regarding 4 male adults ages 28-38 who were several hours overdue from a bicycle ride from Mount Wilson in the Angeles National Forest to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Windsor Turnout in Pasadena.
The riders went for a ride at approximately 10:00 A.M. until 3:00 P.M. Family members located automobiles belonging to the riders at the Windsor turnout. At approximately 9:00 P.M. additional Search & Rescue members were requested from the Montrose Search & Rescue team. One Sheriff’s Department helicopter and many Search & Rescue team members searched through the night until approximately 4:00 A.M Monday morning, without locating the missing men. Plans are being made to request additional Search & Rescue teams from throughout the county and use search aircraft at approximately 7:00 A.M. this morning.
The 4 bicyclist are from Glendale, North Hollywood, Rialto, and Sunland.
Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team personnel are reserve sheriff’s deputies who volunteer their time to help others for $1 a year, and who partner with sheriff’s civilian volunteers who volunteer for free. There are over 150 members of the eight Search and Rescue teams of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, who were activated for over 450 search and rescue missions last year, making it one of the most active counties for search and rescue missions in the nation. Reserve deputies and civilian volunteers are supervised by full-time sheriff’s deputies. http://lasdreserve.org/.
