PCSO Search and Rescue Finds Missing Hiker
 
Posted: 2/25/2013 12:00 AM
 
UDPATE: Approximately one hour ago, Robin Byrd was located by Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, Search and Rescue Posse members. She was located along the Bluff Springs Trail deep within the Superstition Mountains. She was warmed up and is in the process of being flown down to an awaiting ambulance. She will then be taken to a local hospital to be evaluated.

Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, “The around the clock work of Search and Rescue Team members is undoubtedly what saved the life of Robin Byrd once again. Hopefully she has learned a lesson this time and won’t be returning to hike alone in the Superstition Mountains.”

This evening, Pinal County Search and Rescue Team members also were called to find a lost hunter in the area of Willow Springs Road and Highway 77. The hunter had become lost and disoriented in the snow and used his cell phone to call for help. Search and Rescue Team members were able to locate him and helped him return to his vehicle.
