Location: Arcata

On 09-12-2012, approximately 11:00 p.m. the Arcata Police department received a call from Andre Codagone, 22 years old, an Arcata resident, who said he was lost somewhere behind the Arcata Community Forest. Codagone told the Arcata Police he had gone hiking for a few hours by himself in the Arcata Community Forest when he realized he could not find his way back. Luckily he had a cell phone with him, so he called for help. After speaking with Codagone, Arcata Police believed he had hiked out of the City of Arcata and was now in the counties jurisdiction. The Sheriff’s Office was notified by Arcata Police. Sheriff’s dispatch utilized the cell phone’s GPS feature and led two deputies to Codagone, who was located approximately 1.7 miles from West End Road, Arcata. He was in good health.
