How does George keep the men from finding lennie right away? How do we know that is not where lennie would have gone? Evidence from the text.

George asks Candy to delay the men so he can get to Lennie first. Geirge doesn't necessarily say where he's going, and he understands that he's only bringing Lennie in.... or ending it all.
"O.K. Give me a couple minutes then, and you come runnin’ out an’ tell like you jus’ found her. I’m going now." George turned and went quickly out of the barn.
