PRESCOTT VALLEY – The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Rescue-1 helicopter was searching an area near Perkinsville Road Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 27, for a missing 18-year-old man, YCSO spokesman Dwight D’ Evelyn said.

Christian Reiter went for a walk Monday afternoon, leaving from Coyote Springs and Mummy View in Prescott Valley, and never returned home, his mother, Janie Reiter, wrote in a Facebook post.
