A missing dirt bike rider on the Central Coast has been found, but has quite a story to tell after being thrown off his bike, and hiking five miles with an injured clavicle.

Rodney Hill was riding his motorcycle yesterday morning near Pozo, a small community east of San Luis Obispo.  After he failed to return, a search was launched yesterday afternoon.  Searchers found his damaged motorcycle, and then later found him on foot about five miles away.  The 48 year old man told rescuers he had been riding his bike on a dry lake bed when he had an accident, and was thrown from it.
