    Ventura County Sheriff – Incident Press Release

    On Thursday 10/24/19, at about 2050 hours, the Lockwood Valley Sheriff’s Station

    received a call for service regarding two dirt bike riders who became lost while riding on Snowy Trail without food or water. The Sheriff’s Office initially received limited information regarding the whereabouts of the two lost riders; however, the riders were able to provide their GPS coordinates. The riders were instructed to stay at the provided GPS coordinates until a search and rescue team could respond to their location.

    The GPS coordinates showed the riders were near Snowy Trail at the junction of Piru Creek, west of Smith Fork Creek. The Fillmore Search and Rescue Team was activated and quickly responded to the area. The Fillmore Search and Rescue Team is comprised of a highly trained and dedicated group of volunteers who tirelessly and selflessly put others first.

    After responding to the area, the search and rescue team utilized dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles (ATV’s) to get as close to the lost riders as possible. The team then hiked over a mile in the dark while navigating difficult terrain. By 0200 hours, the search and rescue team located the riders, who were in good health and no need for medical attention. They were provided nourishment and warm clothing before being guided back to the awaiting ATV’s. They were escorted to their camp without incident.

    There are many hazards and risks associated with recreating in the national forest and wildlands. Many of these hazards and risks can be mitigated with proper planning and preparation. At a minimum, it is imperative to be familiar with the area you are recreating in, have a map, and ensure someone who is not with the group knows the details of your trip and when to report you as overdue.

    Please recreate responsibly for your safety and the safety of our first responders.
