SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. - The Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office has found a camper on Mount Shasta that has been missing since Saturday.

Police say that the man walked away from some friends that he was camping with following an argument around 1 a.m. on Saturday and was found two days later on Monday morning taking shelter in a nearby ski park. 

He told authorities he ran away due to safety concerns that the group he was with was using hallucinogenic drugs.

Dry weather, sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and gusty north winds will drive elevated fire danger today. We'll have even stronger winds, but cooler temperatures on Tuesday. Fire danger will remain elevated. There will also be a chance for light showers in the Sierra on Tuesday and Wednesday.
