4/25/12 Howland Search

Because of the extensive news coverage over the previous 3 days, the MMSAR Duty Officer put members on unofficial standby early in the day on Tuesday 4/24/12.  The official call-out came at 7:40 p.m. the same day, for a 7:00 a.m. start time.

Three MMSAR members and their mounts responded; Melissa/Peekaboo, Sharon/Zephyr, and our newest members Rachel/Prince on their first search.  They were on site at 7:00 a.m., received their assignment at 8:00 a.m., and searched from 8:50-10:30 a.m., at which time the search was called off.  The deceased subject was found by a Warden's dog.
