ESAR was called by Grays Harbor county to help search for a missing 63YO Female, missing since 1700 on May 28. She left her house to walk a nearby trail, which she does multiple times each week. Subject saw mushrooms off the trail, went to pick them, then got disoriented and couldn't find her way back.
We arrived at search base at 0845. The IC initially wanted us to search off the trail through the thick brush. While briefing the teams, the subject was located by West Coast dog team, in good but weak condition, so our assignment was changed. ESAR assisted Thurston County ESAR with stokes carry out.
9 people responded. We had 7 people in the field. Assignment completed at 1100. Debriefed with Thurston County and departed base at 1130.
