Hope & Search for Ryan Daley

Ryan Daley, and his friend Dan Archbald, went missing May 16th in Ucluelet BC after returning from an 8-week sailing trip. We haven't heard from him since and are getting increasingly worried for his safety.

It has now been 3 weeks since Ryan was seen and although we don't have much to work with we're keeping our hopes up and continuing our search efforts.

Ryan is my oldest brother. He is fiercely loyal, beautifully creative, edgy, adventurous, strong, incredibly smart, and loves with all his heart. He is extremely familiar with the terrain in BC, he's resourceful, and he doesn't get himself into stupid situations. We can't imagine where he is or why no one seems to remember speaking with either he or Dan.

A previous GoFundMe was started to initiate the search for both men.  As Dan's family begins planning  for the unbelievably difficult possibility that they will have to live in a world without him, our family will continue investing in search efforts to bring them home.  The resources from the previous search have been spent on costs associated with the search coordinated by both families. Our subsequent search will focus on what the Daley family can do, but we do need resources. We hope to hire thermal drones in the coming days and explore the possibility of working with a missing persons investigator and intuitive.

All I want is to give my brother a huge hug and be able to get mad at him for giving us all such a scare. Please help us to keep looking for him. We don't want to give up.

Love the Daleys
