HELP! AZTom Missing. UPDATE: He's been FOUND!

AzTom went for a ride alone-----He called his wife at 12:30 pm, from Bagdad. Told her he was going to do some exploring then slab it home and be home by 5pm.
She called me at 9pm.I loaded up my Jeep and went to Bagdad and met up with the local sheriff(2 of them). We searched till 4am. Nothing. Tom's cell goes right to voice mail.
We need more bodies to search.
The big problem is we don't know where he went from there.

Wish I were closer.
Just some thoughts


Does he carry a Spot?

Color of bike, helmet, clothing ?

How much water / survival gear does he carry?

Any friends with an airplane? Prescott has flight training schools. Maybe they teach search and rescue and need some real world practice.
Offer to pay for a pilot's fuel and I'd bet you get some takers.

What areas have you searched at this time?

There are hunters everywhere in that area this weekend. They also have a good search & rescue team in that region.
He had a new bike a crf230... Was he riding it?
Only good thoughts for Tom

Crap, just saw this

I talked to him Thursday, he was planning to check out a path from Bagdad that he said was part of where he got off track last year?

I can load up now, who's coordinating the search?

I let eddy know just now and he's gonna head that way too. Got a message in to another inmate to see if he can go and fly around up there. I'll keep trying to help the best I can.

If anybody needs to borrow a bike to help with the search efforts, mine is available. Crf450x. Call me if you want it. 602 451 8262

I posted this on the Expedition Portal forums in the Four Corners section. Maybe they can add some vehicles to the search. I'll cross post it on another 4 x4 forum as well. Hope all goes well, wish I was closer to help.

Good News!!!!! My heart sunk when I read this and then called 4Play. If there is anything we can do still let us all know.

We need to put together a list of names and numbers for everyone we know that rides motorcycles and share it. Also, a spot for anyone that rides alone!!!!!
