Mt Si Skydiver

Type 3 search on Mt Si
Met at 0600 to carpool up to King County to assist in the search for a missing skydiver. We thought we would have a low turnout since many of our members were tied up in a training course, but 22 people responded. Five teams hiked up the main Mt Si trail to 3200' where we split off and did type 3 grid searches. The snow level was at 2500', so we were searching in deep snow. The terrain was fairly steep, 20-35% grade at times. It was after dark before most teams finished up their assignments and hiked back to the trail head.

Search for Mushroom Picker in Skamania County

PCESAR was called to assist Skamania County with a search for a missing 60-year-old mushroom picker. She went missing Dec 1 and after exhausting their local resources, we were called to help search on Dec 6. PCESAR grid searched an area north of where she was last seen, looking for any clues of her whereabouts. Also searching were teams from many other Washington and Oregon counties. Our area yielded no clues, however a PNWSAR team located a crashed plane missing since the 1970s. The terrain was steep with heavy underbrush and the rain was consistent--a reminder of why we train and test our gear in the winter rain.
