Religious group found safe after 22-hour search near Palmdale

Sep 19, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
Twelve members of a Christian group reported missing Saturday afternoon have been taken to an L.A. County sheriff's station, and the leader, Reyna Marisol Chicas, 32, is undergoing psychological tests.

The group left behind farewell letters, personal documents and cash and took off into the night on a mysterious religious trip. After relatives reported them missing, authorities began a 22-hour search using horses, helicopters and patrols to comb the sprawling desert terrain around Palmdale as satellite trucks from national news outlets moved in.
