PLEASE HELP US FIND Scott Tennis England!!!


Scott is an expert pack-rafter (with a yellow packraft) who left on a SOLO Rafting trip a week ago, and has not been seen since! He was last dropped off about a mile from the Buffalo Fork River near Jackson Hole, WY area on the 18th!



We are trying to find volunteers for a search party for Scott Tennis England... We need people to come out in DROVES and help with this effort, PLEASE! A SEARCH AND RESCUE team is being briefed presently, and a new Facebook group is the place to post... (LINK BELOW)... please help us find a man who would give you the shirt off his back... by sharing this link below to the SEARCH AND RESCUE OPP going on soon...
https://www.facebook.com/groups/findscott/

All contact info is listed in the above link... please share it! More information will be listed in the link above soon!

Any help with logistics, lodging for out-of-towners to stay, food, transportation, communications, etc. would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

Please help us find your FELLOW BOATER!!!

THANKS!!!

-Dave

That sucks! How long of a section is that run? Maybe he had gear failure and is trying to hike out still... Hoping for the best turnout for all involved!

I just happened to be at Slide Lake when he came pulling into the boat launch -- the search and rescue helicopter had landed a few minutes before (must have seen him coming down the lake in his yellow packraft) -- so SAR is telling him he was the object of a search. I gather he had no idea and had not been in any trouble (just had not apparently left his plans for a week-long trip with anyone -- or anyone SAR found at least). They also were dis-recommending that he packraft the Gros Ventre below the lake because it was crankin' class V. He was still wanting to do it -- don't know what he decided about that. I asked a SAR guy if maybe he needed a ride into town, but SAR said they had it covered. (I wasn't eavesdropping, but couldn't help but pick up a few things while I was putting boats on the car roof.)

This appears to be a lack of communication, from his FB page:

"Hi, everyone! I wanted to let everyone know that I'm all fine. I had planned to paddle the length of the Gros Ventre drainage. Nothing happened to me. I just worried everyone, not letting them know my exact schedule, partly because I didnt know my exact itinerary, But was prepared to spend 2 weeks packrafting the Gros Ventre. I will share more info later. sorry for worrying everyone."

So he'd give you the shirt off his back...he just won't tell you when.
