Around 22:00 hours, the Fillmore Mountain Team was activated along with a helicopter from the Ventura County Sheriff's Dept. to begin a search of the deep canyon. The East Valley Team was called out on Easter Sunday to assist the Fillmore Team. The team members searched several miles of the creek beds in the area.
