At approximately 1000 hrs. we received a call from the Indio office of the Riverside County Sheriffs' Department that a group of hikers from a weekend descent of Deep Canyon, were overdue in reaching the bottom of the canyon near Palm Desert. It was decided that the rendezvous point would be at the Sugar Loaf cafe. While members were enroute, the group walked out, and the mission was aborted at 1100 hrs.
