UPDATE-Missing Person in the Fernan Saddle Area

Coeur d’Alene, ID: Kootenai County Deputies, Forest Service Law Enforcement Officers, Volunteers from the Kootenai County Volunteer Search and Rescue (VSAR) Unit and Spokane Air Unit searched all day for Joel Brown.  The area where Joel is believed to be in is very brushy, steep and difficult to navigate.  Due to darkness and the terrain, the search has been suspended until Tuesday morning.  In the morning, searchers will again focus their efforts in the Fernan Creek area up near Fernan Saddle. Again, if anyone has any information or contacts Joel, they are asked to contact the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office at 208-446-1300.
