Those of you who know this sweet man, who waits tables at River Inn, he may need your good intentions for his safe return. He went on a backpacking trip alone, MAYBE to China Camp, Pine Ridge, to Sykes and was due back Thursday or Friday, but has not been seen, yet. He is a tall black man with a sweet smile. Search & Rescue has been out both yesterday and today. If you see him, or HAVE seen him in the last week, please contact Bob Cole at the State Park or MCSO.
Noon from Suzy Cowman Tennyson: “Just got off the phone w/ Deputy Jesse…. nothing yet. But he does report they have helicopters (don’t know how many, but he used the plural) out again today along with “lots of guys”….”
Keep good thoughts for his safe return home. It worked with Chief … Let’s make it work for Arvin. And Arvin, if I’ve embarrassed you, I’ll give you a great big hug and apologize next time I see you!
