A man called authorities to say he and four friends were lost after driving to a rave party in Johnson Valley during the middle of the night on June 30.
According to the caller, their vehicle broke down at 4:55 a.m. after beginning their journey almost two hours earlier. They had little water, no food and a cell phone with low battery life. If needed, however, the group had fireworks.
With the help of a San Bernardino County Sheriff helicopter, deputies located the lost group at about 8 a.m.
