On Friday, July 4th, seventeen year old Thomas Biggs disappeared within yards of his family's cabin on the Wisconsin River. Two days later volunteer search and rescue crews started a search of the area and found him at the bottom of a pond only feet from where he was last seen...100 yards from the cabin.
Response to persons in distress has long been an honorable and charitable tradition. The professionals in search and rescue have carried on this tradition of helping others by dedicating time, information, skills, equipment and funding to the relief of suffering. Please help give back to those who so selflessly volunteered their time and effort toward finding him...that they may find others before it is too late.
