A member of our community is missing. You may have seen news reports that Ronald Kirk's vehicle was found in Calico Basin, days after he was reported missing. Search crews, including Metro's Search And Rescue, went out today looking for him, to no avail. If you're available tomorrow (Wednesday) morning, please come out and aid in the effort to find Ronald.
Hikers will be meeting Metro's Ed Pierce at the end of Calico Basin Rd. at 8 AM. Head out to Calico Basin and take the road all the way to the end, past the Red Springs parking area. Ed Pierce will help coordinate the search.
Searchers should come prepared with regular hiking essentials, bright clothes, extra water and food, and a whistle. Please search in groups of two or more.
I implore you to come out and help if you can.
