Cold and Lonely Night on the Desert

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints


Two Provo women spent a cold and lonely night on the San Rafael desert on Saturday. Sarah Udall, 26, and Rachel Green, 19, were hiking in the Devil Canyon area when they became lost. They had a day hike planned which turned into an overnight adventure. A cell phone call came into dispatch approximately 8:05 p.m. reporting the pair lost. They were hiking Devils Canyon on the round trip circle trail. They were hiking on inaccurate directions and when they became lost, they started following horse trails. The pair decided to call in when they almost fell off a cliff.

Dispatch organized a search and rescue with two posse units being called out and a search plane was requested at daylight. Rescuers spent the night looking for the pair. The subjects were located on Sunday morning by air by Deputy Ray Jeffs, just southwest of the area at an old airstrip. They were transported by 4-wheelers back to their vehicle. They reported that they spent a cold night, but did have food and water. They did not get much sleep but were in good condition.
