Help for missing kayakers
My friends Cooper and Charles are part of a six person expedition kayak team in Eastern Tajikistan. On 9/30 they hit the emergency beacon on their SPOT GPS devices. A helicopter was supposed to begin a search mission today, but for whatever reason, it did not go out.
The state department is urging their families to spread the word in case there is someone- hiker, trekker, tourist, ambassador, visitor, state department worker involved in that area who can help organize a rescue or have knowledge of the area.
These are six STRONG and extremely accomplished and experienced paddlers. They would not send off an emergency distress call unless their situation was very bad.
Charles and Cooper are really good friends and good, good men. Thank you for passing this on.
