UPDATE: 1/29/14 – Posted on Reuben’s Facebook page, “SEARCH DETAILS: I have a trained SAR person interested in leading a community search at the break of dawn Saturday Morning. She is also trained to organize search and rescue and runs the organization Hope for All Missing. Are there any other trained SAR persons on this page that are willing to step up outside of your professional organization to assist her along with community members? It would be nice if we could have several different teams going at one time, but i would prefer they all be headed by at least one trained SAR person. PLEASE, anyone who is willing and able to help, we need all the help we can get. I will post more details with time and location later today. please comment below if you can help.”
