MISSING: Please Help us Find Thom!
Thom McCoy went on a multi-day hiking/camping trip to the Found Lake Area in the North Cascades, alone, the week of August 6th - 10th, 2013. He was due home Saturday, August 10th, but has not been seen or heard from. His car was located at the trail, Search and Rescue and family and friends have covered the high lakes area from 8/11 on with ground and air searches. Because no sign of Thom or his gear was found, the Sheriff's Department and SAR suspended the official search on August 14th; they will resume the official search if any clues are found. Family and friends have continued to search. The family wants to hire a private helicopter and private Search and Rescue Dog Teams to continue the search, but they need help with financial resources.
Estimates at this time for helicopter time, dogs and handlers is about $6,000.
Anything you can give will be helpful. This is a critical time, the longer the search goes on the harder it will be to find him.
