Alternate (maverick's) search thread.

Use this forum to stay informed on missing persons alerts, active SAR's and unfortunate hiker accidents we can all hopefully learn from. Any information you may have on a missing person, including first hand weather related information or any other insight (however little) may prove to be critical information to Law Enforcement / SAR in locating the person in question.

Maverick, sparky, canukyea, Shawn—you went for a voluntary personal search having basically no clue where Larry has gone. Most of the terrain you searched was not only tough to walk and navigate through but also difficult to search. Even though against the odds, you went there and did a great job covering a quite big area with such a small team. I'm sure Larry's family and friends are very grateful for your initiative and efforts and so is HST community. You are "The Men".

Of course, a huge gratitude goes to official SAR team members as well for putting so much time, efforts and various resources to scale the search by ground and air over the vast terrain Larry was expected to travel through. There is still Inyo SAR team searching Split Mountain/Red Lake area we have not heard about their outcome yet.

However, regardless of the final result let's never forget all of these involved people's actions and dedications to the search. These actions represent one of many our characteristics that define us humans.

Because the alternate search has now concluded, and some of the original SAR efforts may still be underway, I am going to lock this thread and move Hobbes' post to the SEKI Public Affairs thread in case it's of any value.

A big THANK YOU to those who reported back on this venture, and for your time, skill and courage in setting out to do it.
