The team was called to the Lake Elsinore area to perform a search for a missing male in his mid-thirties. There was some indication by the Sheriff’s Dept. that this search could involve a possible suicide. The search area was rather heavily covered with vegetation, but would have been much worse had there not been a brush fire there a year earlier. Not very long into the search, one of the lead RMRU teams explored a drainage and came upon the subject. Unfortunately, the preliminary Sheriff’s report proved true...the man had taken his own life. Recovery was quickly made with the assistance of other team members.
