Our efforts were, like many others out there the last few days, unsuccessful. We reached a point where it was practically impossible to keep going, and definitely impossible to come back down if we had carried on. The hike was very difficult, even with hundreds of dollars in climbing gear which was eventually forfeited to the canyon.

I really do hope the two of them are alive, but it's hard to see it that way when absolutely no sign of them has been uncovered for over 48 hours. The choppers with FLIR cams were called off for maintenance and fuel, resuming their search at 4:00am PST. Aerial search has shown nothing but deer, but the Sheriff's dept and Search and Rescue teams are carrying on with them today.

Best of luck to Nicholas and Kyndall. You have hundreds of concerned citizens and volunteers doing everything they can to bring you home safe. I spoke to Kyndall's mother yesterday, she was, of course, in tears the whole time. I hear she's doing better today, hopefully that spirit will ring on.

Special thanks to Brad, Kenny, and Andre for making the trek out here from North County this late, although they all have obligations to attend early in the morning.

Traveler OUT.
That trail that we took was definitely a semi difficult one. Most of it was vertical up hill on loose rocks, soft dirt and mud. Without help from a rope a few of us definitely would have gotten hurt.

The guys we were with are also continuing today on the fire road and working their way to their last known location.

x2...

I don't want to think anything bad happened, but as time goes on and there's still no sign of them, my imagination can't help but wander into speculating what "might" have happened.

Either way, I'm gonna do everything in my power to help until we get some closure. I may have been one of the last people to ever see this couple.

I saw you guys all driving towards the road to Holy Jim as I was leaving. My friends and I scoped out the mine off of the horseshoe trail. Wish I had more time cause I'd like to continue in on the search. But good luck out there, stay safe
