Thanksgiving Day search for overdue hunters-

11/27/2015
Wednesday evening at 2030 ACSSAR received a request from the Albany County Sheriff's Office to be on standby for a possible search Thursday morning. Two hunters had become disoriented in thick fog near Sybille Road/Canyon. ACSSAR Teams mobilized at first light and entered the field around 0730. Limited contact had been made with the hunters and a general search direction was established. Approximately 1230 contact was made with the hunters. Both were in good shape and had built a strong shelter and two fires to keep warm. Search teams and hunters made their way back to Command by about 1530. Search teams experienced Temperatures in the single digits throughout the day as well as low visibility and areas of waist deep snow. Thank you to all responding on this Thanksgiving day! So much to be thankful for!
