DAVIS COUNTY, Utah -- A man who took a road bike up a trail in Davis County was rescued Tuesday morning after being stranded overnight.

According to authorities, Monday night the man was riding a motorcycle on a trail not designed for motorized vehicles and got stuck.

The man was able to call his brother around 9 p.m. Monday and tell him he was stuck in the area of Davis Creek and Ricks Creek before his phone battery died.

The man's family called authorities to report he was missing around 3:45 a.m. Tuesday, and searchers located the man just minutes later. They found the man quickly because he had given his brother the GPS coordinates for his location during the call Monday night.

A helicopter flew the man out of the area around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. Authorities say the man was disoriented when he was found but will not require transport to a hospital. His identity has not been released.
