The search for a man believed to have gone missing in a remote area of Butte County, southeast of Concow, has been called off after the man was reportedly seen in Yankee Hill.
43-year-old Shawn Miller's family told Butte County Search and Rescue teams they were contacted Friday and informed by a close family friend that Miller was actually in Yankee Hill and not missing near Dark Canyon road at the north end of Lake Oroville.
Search crews were called in Friday after family and friends became concerned that Miller had not been seen since embarking on a crystal hunt Tuesday morning. The concerned friends searched the area for Miller Thursday and became concerned when they found his ATV nearby.
The friends called the sheriff's office today and search and rescue crews, along with several k-9 unis were dispatched around 10 a.m.
