Robert Marmon was found around Noon Monday in the area of Philbrook reservoir. He is said to be in good spirits and in good condition.

Butte County Search and Rescue is currently looking for a Chico man who is believed to be missing in the dense forest area near Inskip. Robert Marmon was hiking alone on the Pacific Trail. He did not meet his party yesterday morning near Belden where he was due to be picked up.
It is believed that Robert only had a backpack and minimal camping gear. He was not prepared for snow or extreme weather.
Butte County Search and Rescue is currently using snow cats and all-terrain vehicles to search for Robert, however the thick snow is making it extremely difficult. As of 2:00 P.M. crews were regrouping near Stirling City to decide the best and safest searching method. As of now, the search is halted due to weather.
