The Altadena Mountain Rescue Team was activated Sunday night at 9:25 p.m. to assist Altadena station patrol personnel searching for a dead body reportedly found in Las Flores Canyon, in the Angeles National Forest.

Instead of dead, the Team discovered a sleeping 57-year-old homeless man living in an abandoned mine approximately one mile north of Loma Alta Drive and Lake Ave.

The homeless person did not require any assistance, authorities said.
