The downtown real estate broker-poet missing since Friday in Joshua Tree National Park was found today and flown to a hospital, according to a family friend cited by Blogdowntown and a report by the Palm Springs Desert Sun. "He was conscious when the rescuers found him and was talking with them, but he does have some injuries and some exposure issues,” park spokesman Joe Zarki said.
