A BEASLEY Classic Rock KKLZ/LAS VEGAS scavenger hunt contest ended up with several listeners lost in the desert and five needing rescue.
NBC affiliate KVBC-TV/LAS VEGAS reports that the listeners are looking for a painted red rock, the key to a $10,000. giveaway, but on SUNDAY a family of four needed rescue and on TUESDAY a 72 year old woman had to be rescued after her car got stuck in rough terrain and she had to spend the night in the vehicle. Police are asking the station to warn listeners to be prepared with a four wheel drive vehicle and adequate supplies of food and water before heading into the desert to look for the rock.
