That's cool that the family was able to get closure. Made me think, I wonder if search and rescue are using thermal now days. Seems like it would sure help efforts in the air.

We hunted the unit next door last year. Definitely rugged and dark ground. Glad the family got some closure after all these years.

Dang, that is amazing.

I wonder if they will do an autopsy and announce how he died.
