VERNON, B.C. - A 25-year-old dirt-bike rider who was reported missing by his family in British Columbia's Okanagan has found himself facing some legal trouble.

RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk says Kyle MacInnes of Vernon has appeared in court to face four counts of failing to comply with his bail conditions.

Molendyk says MacInnes's family asked for help locating him after the inexperienced rider failed to return on Tuesday from a late-afternoon outing on his dirt bike.

Several ground and air search-and-rescue teams looked for MacInnes but he returned on his own mid-Thursday morning.

Molendyk said previously that police questioned MacInnes but the man didn't say much.

He now says police believe MacInnes was in the area and don't believe he was missing as his family believed. (CKIZ)
