Grateful to searchers for their efforts

To the editor:

You never think that your family will be in a situation that requires several agencies to work together to solve, but that's just what happened last week to my family. A family member wandered off into the woods without supervision and became lost.

After a 911 call, Ray Brook state police, Torry Hoffman and DEC Forest Ranger Dan Fox organized a search and along with many others from the DEC, including Lt. Chris Kostoss, state police, K-9 dogs and handlers, the bloodhound and handler from Ogdensburg, helicopter and rescue teams and many friends searched for 15 hours until she was found and safe.

Words cannot express our gratitude for the support, compassion, long hours and hard work that these men and women put in. Many thanks go to those who searched throughout the night and continued the following day and for all the help and support from friends who worked alongside the search teams and on the sidelines. There are many people who were there that I have not mentioned, but we want you to know that your long hours, hard work and compassion is not unnoticed. We are so lucky to live in an area that has all the people and resources available in a time of need.

Our everlasting gratitude from the Ring, Atwood, and Cushman families.
