Ok, this isn't too much of an update but I wanted to let you know where the search stands as of now-- there is now a confirmation of a three-day extension. However, what is unclear is exactly how many resources (American and Japanese alike) are available. There are many people in the air, but we need more people on the ground; the family is looking into how to make that happen.
This is a press release created by the University of Wyoming. Please forward this as you see fit.
And finally, you can listen to an archive of the NPR broadcast HERE.
