"The Mammoth Lakes Police Department (MLPD) is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a missing person. On July 29, 2013 a missing persons report was taken on Matthew Greene, age 39. Mr. Greene arrived in MammothLakes on or near June 27, 2013 to hike, camp, and conquer peaks in the Eastern Sierra.

According to his family and friends, Matthew Greene is an avid hiker, rock and ice climber. The last known person to have contact with Greene talked to him on July 16. He was camping at Shady Rest Campground while his vehicle was being repaired at a local shop. Mr. Greene has not returned to Shady Rest Campground or picked up his car from the repair shop."

Well that's it.. I'm getting a spot device for my solo trips.

I hope he's found safe and sound!

spot = $100 + $100 /yr

PLB = $250

Of course, someone should always know your plans, where you will be and where you are headed regardless.

*Nods*
The final straw for me, before I bought a PLB, was when a group went missing on Mt. Hood a few years ago. A SPOT, or a PLB, are prudent in my opinion, particularly if you hike alone.

I hope they find him and that he's ok.
