    Please go to the facebook page Bring Kris Fowler/Sherpa Home, or username tag /u/dummey in a comment here, if you have any helpful information on his potential whereabouts or want to help in anyway. I am not affiliated with the search, but thought I'd broaden the audience to increase the chances of useful info.

    Update1 (31/10 11:24AM PST): Yakima County Sheriff, Sgt Briscoe taking lead in investigation. Helicopters and hikers being sent out by them shortly.
    Update2 (1/11 9:07AM PST): Fox45now article. Q13FOX video
    Sherpa's belongings were searched at the hotel in Packwood, as he had left them in a trailer he was staying in without permission (?), he said he was just cold. Cops ran his ID and found nothing wrong, and the kind owners of the trailer ended up feeding him that lunch and night, gave him hotel room for the the night, asked him to stay another night, but he left the next morning. He mentioned he was hitching to Cracker Barrel and then hiking to Snoqualmie. He also had the intention of going to Goodwill for warmer clothes.

    They know its a possibility, and this is more then likely not the first, or longest they have experienced. I respect your views though

    Federal shutdown also hits Appalachian Trail - WHSV

    This shutdown is different than your plant shutting down annually. I imagine your employer doesn't just call you up one night and say don't come into

    Federal shutdown also hits Appalachian Trail - WHSV

    Its no different than manufacturing. Our plant, and most shut down for inventory and cleaning annually and without pay. No one is crying a river due
