    APPALLED AT THE EL DORADO,CALIF. SHERIFF DEPT


    THE SEARCH PARTY CONSISTED OF ONE DEPUTY SHERIFF.
    I WAS ABSOLUTLY APPALLED AT THE LACK
    OF AN ORGANIZED SEARCH PARTY BY THE EL DORADO,CALIF. SHERIFF DEPT.


    AFTER DINNER I ATTENDED A PORTION OF A MEETING WITH THE SHERIFF
    AND MEMBERS OF HIS STAFF.THE TONE OF THE MEETING WAS OPEN HOSTILITY
    ON THE PART OF THE SHERIFF. THE MEMBERS OF THE PARTY WERE TRYING TO
    PLEAD AND REASON WITH THE SHERIFF AND 2 WE NEEDED MASSIVE ORGANIZED
    AID TO FIND ONE PERSON BEFORE IT WAS TO LATE.
    FINALLY AFTER 2 HOURS OR SO OF PLEADING AND ARGUING, THE SHERIFF
    BEGAN TO CHANGE HIS TONE AND AGREE TO GET FOREST CREWS AND A HELICOPTER
    BACK IN.THE SHERIFF SET UP A BRIEFING FOR 1130AM. THURSDAY MORNING.
    STARING A MEETING AT THIS LATE HOUR WOULD PRECLUDE ARRIVAL IN THE CANYON
    TO START SEARCHING MUCH BRFORE 3PM.



    he apparently had been living on guts and adreneline for
    a long time, because once he was safe and comfortable,he collapsed.
    we planned to wait where we were for the 1pm. rendezvous. periodicically
    we threw leaves and green boughs on the signal fire hoping to attract
    attention, disappointed that there was no helicopter.(the first
    helicopter flight wasobserved at 1230pm. but he was never close enough
    overhead to see our fire). at 115pm. we decided that we'd better wait
    no longer and should start to walk out. we tried to carry HIM OUT, but
    this proved impossible due to the roughness of terrain. 1 stayed
    with HIM and I started out for help. 1/2 mile downstream i ran into a
    party of 4 and started making a stretcher and 2 of the party of 4 out
    to get help in the form of growlersberg equip. and crew and to try to get
    radio contact with sheriff's dept.(walkie-talkies the 3 people from
    the forest service had were no good.(the sheriff would only give us 3
    people to search for roger .(because the sheriff said the whole thing
    was a joke. if you call someone who is lost deep,in the forest for 7 days
    a joke thats funny.)but after a veryrough walk to the the top of the canyon.
    helicopter with a winch was call in from the air force and lifted HIM OUT
    out of the canyon in the gloom of dusk. my prime impression of the operation
    is the in explicable reluctance to act and even lack of interest displayed by
    sheriff. he had to be pushed and badgered to do anything, and
    that was always too little. I've always thought that i read in the
    paper about someone being missing,"they" a great efficient rescue
    organization, took over and called in necessary men and equipment.this
    case, there was no "they". HE was saved by dedicated and persistent
    family and friends.
