Treasure Hunter in White Rock Canyon

Treasure Hunter in White Rock Canyon

3/8/13 White Rock mission: first call out 11:58 PM. Missing hiker had been out for 18 hours and last contact was with her boyfriend (16 hours prior). First IB was at the station 3 firehouse in White Rock.  2 ASAR responders. 3 teams in field for first operational period. Overnight, a cell phone ping was received and a rough idea of the subject’s location was identified. The first operational period had a small coordination team and went rather smoothly. Second period began in the morning and IB was moved to Bandelier. Boyfriend reported that subject saw a waterfall and the only possible waterfall is in Frijoles Canyon in Bandelier. A 5 person ASAR team joined a responder from the previous night and formed a team that headed toward Frijoles Canyon. Shortly after a separate team found her and the ASAR team returned to base.
