Scammon Bay SAR volunteers radio-in the location of three lost men they had just found. The men's red (right) and black (below) snow machines had run out of gas. The black one is perched on the highest ground near the cave, which led searchers to them. The SAR team had built a windbreak of tarp, the red snowmachine's cowling, and their sled to protect the men from winds.

Alaska State Trooper Paul Randall speaks to members of the Chevak SAR group during a debriefing session after a search for a missing young man traveling between Hooper Bay and Chevak. The search did not end well. Nonetheless, the Alaska State Troopers provide immeasurable support to SAR teams across the Y-K Delta. At bottom right, DPS Pilot Earl Samuelson looks on.
