    All, please keep the updates coming. I am organizing the Georgia Chapter SCI membership to donate individually and will email blast everyone on our mailing list. I know several have already donated. If you are able, please email and organize your local Chapter to do the same. Our Chapter donation to follow tomorrow.

    Amen, Hope the morning light brings great news. The human body can go through hell, the human spirit can overcome it.

    Have they considered heat seeking equipment for the choppers? That might aid in penetrating the canopy. Just a thought and every thought counts. Godspeed.

    Fees? Fees? This thread is turning towards fees? I'm sorry. A comment about fees at a moment like this makes my blood boil. I don't post much here and try to follow everything but a man's life hangs in the balance and has a wife and small children and we are going to get sidetracked by the fees a business may or may not take?

    I don't know Scott from Adam but I know he needs help. He needs the community. He doesn't need a discussion about hope and support to fall into nonsense about fees. Ridiculous.........

    Best of luck to the search and rescue. My heart breaks for his wife and family.

    Lets not turn this thread into a fees topic. @Bobpuckett was merely asking to find out if there was another method to send funds to that would perhaps not hold as much of a percentage in order for more money to go towards Scott's SEARCH & RESCUE. Any further post about fees will be deleted.

    Morning everyone, the search continues.. Let's hope and pray for a positive outcome today. There's a massive full scale search effort going on, working both sides of the Limpopo using all the resources available to them, ground teams, choppers, dogs etc. Thanks again to all who contributed we couldn't be doing it without your support

    I must admit I'm worried Scott has not shown up yet. I'm praying good news today!

    UPDATE #8: Hi Everyone, i got permission to share this photo with you all. Here's the helicopters that you guys keep in the sky with all your donations. Here they are waiting for re-fueling, the large helicopter from Harare is not in this picture, these three helicopters are working the Limpopo river on the South African side. Please keep the prayers coming and again i can't thank each and everyone enough.

    Very concerning situation. I can only imagine my family in a similar situation and how desperate they would be...

    When I received the email blast from Jerome, I spoke to my wife and we agreed to donate a small amount and go without eating out this night so, that we can at least provide some hope to devestaed family and friends. I thank the Lord above every day he allows me to spend time with my family. If you're not able to assist financially then please spend a minute tonight and add Scott and his family to your prayers. Isn't this what being part of a community is all about?
