While performing a rescue in the Mecca Mud Hills (Mission No. 1986-007) we were contacted through the Elsinore Station of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department that a teenage couple had not returned to the Ortega Highway from an afternoon outing together. Because of the distance involved, and the other rescue in progress, it was decided to have an Orange County Squad (who was already on scene) do some searching and have RMRU respond at first light. As members rolled to the mission in the morning the couple was located, and were found to be unharmed. The mission was aborted.
