EXPERIENCED HIKERS WE NEED YOUR HELP
Tomorrow, (January 19th, 2016) we will be searching for Randy. We could use searchers, equipment, and helpers.
We will be meeting at Exit 264 on I-25, west side of the highway, at 8 am on Tuesday, January 19th.
If you can help us, we will gladly accept it. We will be searching from south of where the raft was found, up to where the car was parked, and as much area in between as we can cover.
If you DO want to search tomorrow, there are a few rules we have to follow:
-Wear brightly colored vest or jacket. We need to make sure our searchers are easy to spot from the air.
-Bring plenty of WATER! One bottle is not enough.
-Let us know where you are searching. We don’t want a searcher to be mistaken for Randy. We don’t want to accidentally deploy any rescue teams either.
-Don’t touch ANYTHING that looks out of place. We will provide you with a way to mark the location, but it is vital that we don’t affect evidence in any open investigation.
-PLEASE be sure to check in with me. I will be keeping a list of everyone on the team, and making sure everyone checks out and goes home.
If you have ATVs, handheld radios, vests, drones, horses, mountain bikes, maps, or anything else that you think might help find Randy, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will respond with how to coordinate your help.
In addition to this “boots on the ground” search we will also have an aircraft flown by a searcher from Durango with Cynthia as spotter.
Thank you all. The response has been wonderful.
Lets all be safe out there
