He was walking in the hills in Kells Canyon area and got lost in the process forcing him to call the Sherriff’s office.

At first, the guy identified himself using a fake name but was later discovered to be Ryan Henry, a 33-year-old man wanted for a felony.

Ryan’s criminal history caused the rescue mission to be cancelled, and instead, officers were sent to surrounding areas and boats were dispatched to the vicinity.

According to a statement by the Sherriff’s department spokesperson Ashley McClay, paramedics found no proof of a snakebite on Ryan.
