UPDATE #2-Missing Person in the Fernan Saddle Area

Coeur d’Alene, ID:  On June 30th, around 1PM, volunteers from the Volunteer Search and Rescue team located Joel Brown in the Fernan Creek Drainage above the Gun Club. Joel was suffering from mild hypothermia.  Due to the location where Joel was found, Two Bear Air from Flathead Montana responded with their helicopter to hoist Joel from the the ravine.  He was then transported to Kootenai Health for an evaluation.

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank everyone who helped us locate Joel, especially those members of the Kootenai County Volunteer Search and Rescue Unit.
