At a little after 2100 hours Sunday, we received a call from the Indio office of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department that two male hikers were overdue in completing a planned descent of Martinez Canyon. There was one problem though, the sheriff was unable to locate a vehicle, so it was unknown where the pair started from. It was then decided to wait until morning and see if the sheriff could get any further information.

At 1030 hours Monday the Sheriffs' office called and said that the hikers had just walked out and both were in good shape.
