Help find Dan Pham

$20,780 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 217 people in 8 months

21099946_1497156556.8061_funddescriptionOur purpose is to raise enough money to purchase or rent a drone to help find our brother and friend Dan Pham who went missing in South Lake Tahoe 3 days ago. If we can get the support we need, we would be able to search the lake from an aerial point of view of the area where he was last seen/ heard and all the other potential surrounding areas. Any chance you can reach out to the drone community for assistance/support would mean a lot!

Dan Pham set out on a kayak on Thursday June 8 at around 9am towards EMERALD BAY campsite 1. He never made it to his rendezvous point. After much support from the coastguard and El Dorado county sheriff, they've decided to call off the search at 12:40am Saturday June 10 due to declining weather conditions. His family and friends are currently at South Lake Tahoe to perform our own search (have looked into getting help from helicopters and boat charters). They did not find any kayak (green in color) or paddles on the lake or his other supplies he had which leads us to believe he is still out there, maybe stranded or marooned and waiting out the storm or for help. He was an avid outdoorsman and knew what to do. We all ask for continuous prayers and support that we find our brother, uncle, friend, father and bring him back home safely to his family and two children.

Many thanks and God bless.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, to everyone who has donated. This expresses how well-loved Dan is and that he surrounded himself with kind people. Please keep alive the memories of good times spent and conversations with him and he will always be near. We will continue to pray and hope that Dan will be found and returned to us.

Your generosity will fund some of the resources expended for the search efforts. Some will go towards a memorial bench/table from friends or family. The remaining will go towards a trust fund for his children's college education, which is what Dan wants for his kids.

Timothy, Thank you for reach out. We are still in need of a drone rescue group on Wednesday 6/14. However, we have been advised not to fly any tomorrow (Tuesday). The El Dorado Sheriffs partnered with SF Alameda County Sheriff's department to deploy drones tomorrow and would not want any other aids to interfere with their search efforts. The weather will clear up by Wednesday and Thursday and we will be back to conduct searches on land and by boat if at all possible. Please contact me at your earliest convenience.
