UPDATE: 7-12-16 / 4:30 PM
The Search is continuing. A K-9 team was in the area again this morning and the canal was searched by helicopter but with no results.
On Wednesday Morning we will begin a multi agency operation which will include our Rural Fire Departments, The Department of Natural Resources, Laurel Fire, K-9 Teams, US Water Rescue, Billings Police Dept.
The Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office, AMR and possibly out of county Search and Rescue personnel.
The searchers will be staging at the park in Huntley at 0800 and after briefing and a safety meeting searcher will deploy to their perspective search areas.
The water is being lowered again and we will work the tunnel area as well as the entire length of the canal to the clean out area near Ballantine. This is approximately 11 miles.
We would ask that for everyone’s safety, people not involved in the search please avoid the area as we will have people on foot, ATVs and slow moving vehicles in the area.
