Search and Rescue crews had another busy weekend after an overdue rider east of Bend prompted a search late Saturday night. The overdue ATV rider was found okay early Sunday morning; but the outing serves as a warning to others. A chilly lesson for Jan May, 56, of Albany, Oregon had gone off solo without food or a cell phone. Family and friends searched first and then called in authorities. Crews found her around 1 a.m. She was cold, but otherwise okay. Sergeant Joe Deluca of Deschutes County says at least she was dressed well for the conditions: “Which was a great help; but, you know when we're dealing with inexperienced riders and don't have a knowledge base of that area, and don't realize how vast it is. There's really not too many people around; especially this time of year to give you a hand if something does go wrong." He says this area 20 miles east of Bend can be dangerous for non-locals and even people familiar with the area, because it's so desolate.” He says you should never ride alone, and you should bring maps, a cell phone and other tools like a GPS. It also can't hurt to bring some extra food and water.
