According to the Butte County Search and Rescue Team, the logger was last seen around one o'clock on Platt Mountain. He was expected to meet his party a few hours later, but failed to show up. Searchers began staging at Fire Station 23 above Forest Ranch. Search dogs were called in. They were given articles of his clothing and preparing to track him, when the man showed up at the area where he was to rendezvous with his fellow loggers. He needed water, but was otherwise fine.
