Two Way Radio Prank Touches Off Massive Mount Magazine Search

The Northwest Arkansas News reports that a boy touched off a massive 100 person and helicopter search on Mount Magazine after he told a construction worker near the summit on a two-radio that his dad was hurt and he needed help. He could not identify where he was but said he saw something white which authorities thought was a tower or inn near the south side of the mountain. He wouldn’t give his name and the boy was never located. The search was called off after authorities heard him telling a girl about the exploits. Item was also posted on the forum.
