After much input, editing and thought from various groups, several SAR people with help from Esri and Maverick have put together a web map and flyer to make people aware that there's a missing person in the Sierra.

The idea is NOT to have people go looking for Larry, but to be aware that they may run across clues during a planned recreational hike, how to treat and record possible clues and who to report them to. This is part of an ongoing effort on how to use maps and social media to get the public's help on searches. Suggestions are always welcome.


The map interface is here:

The flyer is here:

It would be great if people could print the flyer and put up in mountaineering stores in your area. I'm sending to a friend to post in Bishop. Don't know what REI policy is, but if people could take them by there, that would be appreciated. Links from Facebook etc. would also be terrific.

Thanks,

George

The map link is good. The poster link gets me a blank form


Wherever you go, there you are.

Hmmm. Thanks. Is anyone else having problem getting to the flyer? It's on Google Docs and shows as shared with everyone.

Just tried it with IE (where my Google login is not automatic). It won't show it within a frame and asks for a new window, but then requires a sign in to Google for that. Chrome and Firefox seem to work OK, even without being signed in. Have to figure that one out... .

Does not load on iPhone. PDF would be easier and more reliable across technologies.

I can "see" both of them - and use Chrome.

Both came up last night, and again now. ...on Firefox.

I agree that a PDF would be a good format for a printable flyer.
