Went on my first actual mission last night/today.  Missing person search in East Troy, WI.  Local news annoyingly followed us into the field and filmed us.  The ground team in the video is the one I was in.  Exactly halfway through the video you see a big CAP search member sort of stumble onto the dirt path...thats me  :P

See now when you say stumble, I expected some guy falling onto the road to give a nice little chuckle during an otherwise somber story, oh well.

So did your team make the find or another team?

The link doesn't work for me. I only get the nav bar of the news station.

I used the "stumble" as a reference point to put myself in the spotlight  ;)
As for the finders, it was a SAR team from the local fire dept.  CAP had searched the area earlier, but it was at night, and we weren't going inside too many structures.  Our search was focused on trees/bushes and cars/boats.  When he had wandered off in the past, he had usually been found in cars/boats so thats where we were looking.    We didn't go into structures because, well, we didn't have permission.  We were searching very late in the night and into the morning and weren't about to wake people to get permission.  Actually, we were trespassing for 99% of our search (at least on my first sortie).  We were searching yards and woods etc. along the lake.

Don't say "trespassing"!

"We were utilizing the doctrine of 'presumed consent' to enter private property in exigent circumstances"

'Trespassing' is against the law.....whereas what I said is a lot of confusing double-talk that, hopefully, avoids the issue entirely!
