Missing Men Rescued in Town of Westfield

Chautauqua County Sheriff's deputies were able to find two men who had gone missing in the area of the Chautauqua Gorge watershed on Saturday. At about 6:15 PM, the Sheriff's Office received a report of a 33-year-old man who had entered the trail system on an ATV near Mount Baldy Road in the Town of Westfield. After not returning for some time, the man had contacted a family member by phone and said the ATV had become disabled, and he became lost while trying to find his way on foot. A family member, identified as a 59-year-old man, then tried to find the lost person on foot, but also became lost. A Sheriff's Office K-9 unit used K-9 Bentley to track down the missing men. After approximately one mile, K-9 Bentley found both men unharmed. Neither one required medical attention, and both were returned home.
