BOUNTIFUL — Davis County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue members Thursday night helped retrieve a 41-year-old man from Centerville Canyon.

The man became separated from friends while hiking, said Davis County Sheriff’s Sgt. Susan Poulsen.

His friends called 911 and then found him below Beaver Pond off Skyline Drive.

Rescuers from the sheriff’s office helped him down from the canyon, said Poulsen. A search helicopter also assisted in locating him. Early reports indicated that the man, who has not been identified, had minor injuries; however, it was later determined that he was not injured.
