 A staff member went missing in bad weather on Wednesday night, April 15, triggering a search-and-rescue effort. The staffer was found alive and alert on Saturday morning when the weather cleared.  The search was an enormous multi-national, multi-agency effort and we are all so relieved that our staffer was found.  Read NSF’s press release here, or contact CH2M HILL’s representative, John Corsi, at john.corsi@ch2m.com
