Every day since Paul Melby’s disappearance on Tuesday hundreds of volunteers have scoured every nook and cranny of Crystal’s terrain looking for the missing skier.
These skiers and snowboarders have demonstrated tremendous generosity, banding together, spending hours and days looking for any sign of Paul. Last seen skiing under the High Campbell chair in Rabbit Ears Chute, little is known about where to focus the search.
Ski patrol and volunteer searchers have thoroughly scoured the mountain and yet the search continues. When a skier went missing at Mt. Bachelor, hundreds of volunteers searched for 23 days before being found.
The snowy conditions that brought Paul to the mountain have made searching especially difficult. I’m praying that Melby is found soon. Thanks to all who have sacrificed time and effort to join the search.
