LAKE HAVASU CITY — Late Saturday evening, March 23, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a couple in their 50s who had gone four-wheeling in a CanAm UTV and rolled over off the trail. They were not injured, but were stranded and had no cellular service. They left the vehicle and hiked up to higher ground, where they were able to get cellular service and call for help. While not certain of their own position, location information was sent with their call to 9-1-1. Search and rescue activated and located them off the Rattlers Pass Jeep Trail, where they had accidentally taken a wrong turn. Searchers were able to bring them back to safety with no injuries. Search and rescue members encourage safety in the desert and advise people to travel as a group.
