On Thursday, May 1st, RMRU was called out to search for a man whose car had been abandoned in the Pinyon PInes area about three weeks earlier. A suicide note had been found in the vehicle and it was strong suspected that the subject was no longer alive. RMRU field teams and helicopters searched the area, finding no sign of the missing man.

Another, larger, search was scheduled for Saturday, May 2nd. RMRU, along with Desert Sheriff's Search and Rescue, search dogs, and mounted posse, searched the area. Late in the morning an RMRU search team in Deep Canyon found the remains of a man who matched the description of the subject. With assistance from DSSAR, RMRU was able to retrieve the remains for the coroner.

Our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.
