YCSO looking for man last seen near Castle Hot Springs

Officials with the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office are asking help from the public, as they continue to search for a man who was last seen on December 29.

According to a statement released by YCSO Wednesday night, 31-year-old Corey Bailey was out four-wheeling with friends, and has not been seen after a walk in a remote area near Castle Hot Springs. 

Bailey's sister Tracey Klitch lives in Michigan and she's very shaken by the news of her brother missing. She says he moved to the Castle Hot Springs area in October and loves it -- he always outside, goes on hikes and knows how to live off the land.

"I am scared. I am sad. I am worried. I don't know.. I just want him home," said Klitch. "I would like to be there when he comes home.. when he walks in.. and yell at him, but then there is the other end of the spectrum and I just don't know what happened."

Klitch says the last time she spoke to him was on Christmas Eve and he wished her a happy holiday.

Bailey is described by officials with YCSO as a white man, 6' tall, weighing 165 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. There's no description of what he was wearing at the time, and Bailey was not carrying a cell phone.

The ground and air search for Bailey began on December 31.
