Seattle Deputy Fire Chief Jay Schreckengost: After 12 days, search operations concluded successfully late on Sunday after Tacoma Mountain Rescue Unit, Olympic Mountain Rescue, Central Washington Mountain Rescue, Everett Mountain Rescue and Seattle Mountain Rescue conducted a difficult line search on steep technical terrain and through vertical cliff bands. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the family and the Seattle Fire Department, many of whose members joined SAR teams in the search over the last two weeks.
