Search and rescue volunteers spent a total of 218 hours searching for a man who was later found at a friend’s house in town.
The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said started looking for Marc Alan Mason, 38, of Lake Havasu City, Sunday morning after his wife said he hadn’t returned from a Saturday night ATV ride in the desert. His wife said Mason had called her around 8:30 p.m. Saturday to say he had gotten stranded in the desert. On Sunday morning, search and rescue volunteers scoured the Standard Wash, the Mohave Wash, the Challenger Wash and the Bison area. The search included 21 search-and-rescue volunteers and air support. Around 6:30 p.m., Mason’s wife called emergency dispatchers to say she had learned he was OK and had been at a friend’s house for most of the time, according to a sheriff’s department news release.
