Monday, January 6, 2003. The team was paged out by the Sheriff's department to search for an overdue hiker out of the upper tram station. A 45 year old male, had gone hiking to Round Valley and had not returned. The team responded with six team members to the tram. Just as the first team members arrived they were told that the park rangers had located the subject about 20 minutes from their station. The subject had gone to Round Valley but darkness fell as he returned and could not see the trail, so he sat down beside the trail and waited. The park rangers found him there. Team members responding were Jim Fairchild, Dave Webb, Travis Henderson, Glenn Henderson, Rick Maschek, and Dave Webb.
