3 People Stuck near Brockman Guard Station

On 11/23 at 9:00pm, we responded to the Bone parking lot to locate 3 people who had become stuck in their truck somewhere near Brockman guard station. We were able to locate their cell phone coordinates and send teams directly to them. A hasty team on snowmobiles arrived to assess the situation, followed by a plow and a team with a truck and our amphibious vehicle. We had to tow their truck out as the clutch was inoperable. Heavy drifts made travel very slow and they did not return to the command post until 7am.

Missing Male near Dan Creek

At 4:40pm we began a search for a man who had not been seen for 24 hours. His last known position was somewhere near Dan Creek, southeast of Bone. 6 SAR members and 7 deputies looked for about 2 hours before the subject returned home safely.

Suicidal Male in Idaho Falls

We joined Idaho Falls PD in the search for a man who may have committed suicide and possibly drown in the Snake River. Teams combed the banks and surrounding areas near Snake River Landing, while a boat searched the river with sonar. No sign of him was found and the search may resume in the following days.

Overdue Hunter In The Bone Area

At 4:30pm about 10 SAR personnel responded to the Bone area to look for a trio of hunters who had not returned on time. Bingham County searched earlier in the afternoon with no success. US Forest Service personnel responded as well. The subjects were located aroun 8pm and were unharmed.
