April 18, 2006|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A Danish man who became lost while hiking in the San Jacinto Mountains was found Monday, officials said.

Hans Ebbenscaard, 38, was in fair condition after being found about 11:30 a.m. near Tahquitz Canyon, said Sgt. Earl Quinata, Riverside County sheriff's spokesman. Ebbenscaard was taken to an area hospital.

Authorities began searching Sunday after learning that Ebbenscaard's rental car had sat several days in the parking lot of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.

Searchers paused late Sunday because of darkness but resumed Monday with search and rescue teams from four counties, several helicopters and a canine unit, Quinata said.
