Dear Friends, Yesterday aft…
Dear Friends,

Yesterday afternoon, Sawtooth Mountain Guides found Luke high up on the northwest ridge of Devil’s Bedstead in the Pioneer Mountains. This morning, Custer County Search and Rescue released the following statement:

“On October 14th, 2015 Custer County Sheriff’s office was informed by Blaine County Sheriff’s Office that the body of 25-year-old Lucas Richardson had been located on the Devil’s Bedstead Mountain in the Kane Creek Drainage. Lucas Richardson had been reported overdue from a mountain climbing trip on September 14th, 2015. Custer County and Blaine County Search and Rescue conducted search operation in the Kane Creek drainage, Summit Creek trail and surrounding mountains for over a week with no signs of Richardson. Custer and Blaine County Sheriff’s Offices concluded the search operation on September 21st, 2015. The Richardson Family with the overwhelming show of support by volunteers continued the search operations in the area. On October 14th, 2015 Sawtooth Mountain Guides hired by the Richardson Family located the body of Lucas Richardson on a technical section of rock on the northwest ridge of the Devils’ Bedstead. Custer County Sheriff’s Office and Custer County Search and Rescue working with 2 bear from Kalispell, Montana and Sawtooth Mountain Guides recovered the body of Richardson on October 15th, 2015. Cause of death is under investigation by the Custer County Sheriff’s Office. The Custer County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend our gratitude to all those involved in bringing closure to this tragic incident. Condolences to the friends and family of Lucas Richardson."

Pete, Stef and I want to thank everyone involved in the search as well as those who supported it from afar. Further, we send a special thanks to you, contributors to this fundraiser; without your help, we may never have found Luke.

Thank you so much.

Sincerely yours,

Robert Browning

Hi, Some people have asked f…
Hi, Some people have asked for a sample email to send to friends and family to help raise the funds we need to find Luke. I have pasted one below with the link to the CrowdRise site. Please consider cutting and pasting this into a personal email from you. Thank you again. Pete and Stef want everyone to know how much this support means. All my best, Robert

"Pete and Stef Richardson of Barre Vermont are in Idaho desperately searching for their 25 year old son Luke who has been missing since Saturday, September 12th, when he went on a solo hike near Trail Creek Summit, northeast of Sun Valley. While the official county search was suspended on September 22nd, Pete and Stef are still in Idaho working with professional guides, hired helicopters, dog teams and many volunteers. They will find him, but they need our help. This search is private and expensive. Please consider donating. We're hoping to raise another $25,000 to pay for the search. Give what you can and give soon. We estimate that snow will fall within the next three weeks and hamper our progess. Please, help Pete and Stef find their son.

Thank you for participating …
Thank you for participating in the Find Luke fundraiser on the CrowdRise website. With your help, we received more than 250 donations, and raised $25,425 to put toward finding Luke.

Stef and Pete remain in Idaho, and the search for Luke continues. Robert is there participating and he described his first day as long, with two teams of volunteers moving over difficult terrain. Yesterday he said was slightly less dangerous as they were searching below the tree line. It sounds like many of the volunteers are Luke’s friends who are familiar with the area. Bob described them as young men and women with strong legs, able to run up and down the mountain all day.

Stef and Pete want to thank everyone for their generosity, as well their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. The fundraiser will go offline soon and this will be my last email using their program. I will post any future updates to Bob’s Facebook page. To view his page click the link below.

Again, thank you, and may they find Luke soon. All my best, Brigid
