Through a Mountain Rescue Association call-out we were contacted for a search for a mission adult in the Trinity Alps. After a team call out two members responded with a yes. They were to report first thing Thursday morning to the National Guard station at Van Nuys Airport for air transport up to Northern California. Late in the day the two members had to cancel out because of work related problems. RMRU learned on Friday that as the plane landed in Northern California, teams in the field located the subject. He was found deceased from a fall he took. The plane was turned around and returned to Van Nuys.
