Search and Rescue efforts appreciated

Volunteers deserve a big thank you along with the police and conservation officer

My father who is a retired conservation officer of the Hope and Chilliwack area and needed some help over the weekend.

He left for hunting up to the Skagit. Usually he comes home by 6:30 p.m., but on Friday night at 9:30 p.m. we decided to call the police as he had not returned home. Constable Davidson was in contact with us all night, letting us know everything, getting details, and assuring all of us that they are out searching.

Search and rescue went out, along with Paul Fadden and the rest of the conservation officers and Hope police, to search for him in the morning. Luckily Paul McFadden knew all of my dad’s areas he likes to go. My dad had fallen and injured himself, was tired, cold and wet.

Search and rescue found him took him back, feed him, made him warm. We as a family would like to thank all that helped find my dad. The people at the search and rescue deserve a big thank you along with the police and conservation officer. I want to make people aware how much we need these people and that we should take every opportunity to thank them. Support your local search and rescue and donate!
