Update 2018-07-23: Volunteer search concluded

Dear volunteers,

The Garrett Bardsley Foundation volunteer search effort for Ray Humpherys has concluded. The Summit County Search and Rescue team will continue with any further search efforts.

To the hundreds of volunteers that gave their time, means, and energy to this search: Thank you so very much. We all wish we had been able to find Ray already, but we are so grateful for the outpouring of love that has been shown and for all the territory we were able to cover in the search for Ray.

To all the news and media that have helped cover the search: Please accept our heartfelt thanks for helping spread the word about the search. We could never have gotten the size of volunteer response that we did without your help.

Our hearts go out to Ray and his family and we pray that he may yet be found.
