Great news, just got a phone call from the Old Mill. Dan's bike broke down and his SPOT is missing. He is not sending these SOS messages. He is not even aware of what's going on as he is asleep.

Call the SPOT people and tell them, too. Call off their search efforts and get the account cancelled asap.

Great news indeed! That must have been a terrifying few hours for you. Good for you for activating all the help channels your could muster.
