At 1030 hrs. we received a call from the Indio office of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department that three men were overdue in hiking out from the Sugar Loaf Cafe to La Quinta on the desert floor. The trio started on Sunday and were to be out by Monday evening. RMRU was activated and was to meet at the Sugar Loaf Cafe where we would be joined by Don Landells and his Jet Ranger. Just as members were arriving at the road head the sheriff notified us that the group had just walked out, and were in good shape.
