The trail-head is located in the city of Corona, and leads into the Cleveland Nation Forest.

“About 5:30 p.m. (on March 1, 2014) Marin telephoned home and said he was lost, but would try to make it down the hill before it got dark. About 6 p.m. a search for Marin was initiated and continued through the night.” Stated Hall.

Marin is a 34 year old Hispanic male, about 5’6” tall and weighs about 155 pounds. He left home wearing a black jacket and blue pants. He was riding a blue and black Giant mountain bike. He might also have a small yellow and black backpack.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is actively searching for Marin using search and rescue teams, off-road vehicles, mounted posse members and a helicopter. The United States Forest Service is also assisting with the search.

“The Sheriff’s Department is not currently asking for the public’s help with the search, but is requesting that hikers and bikers be on the lookout for Marin.” Stated Hall.

Stay posted for updates. The Sheriff’s office has asked anyone with information on Marin’s location, or if anyone sees him, please call the Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Command Post at (951) 204-0967.

This is an active investigation, and updates will be posted as they arise.
