North Dakota Wing earns a SAVE

October 22, 2015

Canoeing and Kayaking are very popular outdoor activities; but what do you do when calm waters quickly turn to four and five foot waves tipping your vessel? This past Sunday Oct 11 2015, the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center assisted local authorities in the search for a missing canoeist on Lake Audubon, ND. Local authorities were alerted of the missing individual Sunday night after receiving a call from his concerned fiancé. The AFRCC coordinated with the Civil Air Patrol’s cell phone forensics team, greatly reducing the search area. North Dakota CAP launched a light aircraft to search the area, spotted the canoeist waving his arms and directed local authorities to his location.
