Bakersfield Now, the web site for KBAK TVand KBFX TV (Bakersfield) is reporting that Kern County Sheriff Francis Moore has confirmed that the bodies of two men were "found not too far" from the Kern County Sheriff's Dept. command post. A vehicle was reported to have been found near the bodies according to the post. The sheriff stopped short of saying that the two bodies were those of the two men who have been missing since early Sunday morning. THE PAGE CAN BE FOUND HERE
Regardless of whether the two bodies were those of the missing off-roaders, deepest condolences to the families and friends of the deceased persons.
Despite it's beauty, the desert can be a hostile and unforgiving place. I'll post again when further details are available.
