The team was called out to assist the San Bernardino West Valley team for a hiker missing since Jan. 11, 2004, along the Bear Flat trail leading up to Mt. Baldy. The East Valley team was flown up to near the peak and searched the valley and ridge along the Bear Flat trail. The missing subject's body was found by the China Lake team around mid-day at the 8990 foot level.
