I sent Brad links to my forum posts.26RELOAD, GOOD INFO. THE points you make are known to me and that is why I posed the question as to how well this was being handled in UTAH. I am glad to hear that his sons feel all is being done that can be done. I also asked about trailing hounds because it is so easy to walk right by someone lost and huddled down to protect from cold. A half decent dog will alert that the person is there. DOGS are an invaluable resource in our world in so many ways but because they don't cost millions of dollars like advanced (?) tech gimmicks which often don't work as well, they are often overlooked. I wonder about the lost gentleman's general health maybe being a contributing factor here?.....BUD HOPING+++++for the best possible result. ALSO, wondering if there is any way that the family could be made aware of this online conversation pulling for there lost LOVED-ONE? 338?
