Members of the San Luis Obispo County Four Wheel Drive Club volunteered their time to help the family of San Luis Obispo missing man George Carpenter bring his truck home from northern Monterey County where it was found.
The truck was found exactly one month after Carpenter was reported missing Dec. 23. The area, at 3,300-foot elevation, is between Big Sur and Fort Hunter Liggett. Because of recent storms and poor road conditions, search crews had to use four-wheel-drive vehicles and ATVs to access the area. The road conditions made it difficult to move the truck of the dirt road where it was parked.
The SLO 4-Wheelers is a non-profit that works to bring together members for family oriented activities in the outdoors.
