Search and rescue crews have found a Fresno man who disappeared while on a motorcycle ride near Shaver Lake.

Kenneth Young, 21, was last seen around 2:30 Wednesday afternoon. But a few hours ago, a helicopter spotted him and a team hiked in to get him.

During the search, authorities learned Young had an outstanding felony narcotics warrant for his arrest.

Someone found Young's bike Wednesday, crashed near Dinkey Creek Road and Fishing Club Road -- southeast of Shaver.

Fresno County Sheriff deputies say his family reported him missing hours after he sent a text message to his father -- saying he had a broken foot after a motorcycle crash. But late Thursday afternoon, rescuers found Young and he is safe now.
