Snomads call for searchers
The Snomads snowmachine club seeks volunteers to join a search for a snowmachine rider lost in the Caribou Hills. All searchers should check in at Kachemak Emergency Services McNeil Canyon Fire Hall before searching. The search begins at 2 p.m. today after volunteers have checked in.
All searchers are wanted, especially riders familiar with the Caribou Hills area. Once volunteers check in, they will be briefed on the areas to be searched. Conditions are rough, with blowing snow and low visibility.
Bring cold-weather gear, a VHF handheld radio or text-capable cell phone, along with a GPS, compass and Tyvek map.
The missing snowmachiner was last seen about 10 a.m. Sunday morning and hasn’t been seen since.
