[RC] Search for runner missing in the sierra foothills - Horseraser

Please pass on folks-if you are out on the trail today keep a look out for Daniel Rose
Search For Runner Missing In The Sierra Foothills
FORESTHILL (CBS13) ― Dozens of sheriff's deputies and volunteers are searching for a missing man who spent the night in near-freezing temperatures in the Sierra.

Investigators say 40-year-old Daniel Rose was on a training run in the Foresthill area Sunday when he became separated from his group.
Sheriff's deputies sent out crews in four-wheel drive vehicles as well as quad's to search for Rose.
Several helicopters were being used yesterday and are expected to be back in the air later this morning.

They say he's an accomplished runner but has not been seen since early yesterday.

And with temperatures dropping down into the low 30's overnight hypothermia is a major concern.

"We're extremely concerned due to the elements," Lt. Tornberg of the Placer County Sheriff's Dept. told CBS13, "The gentleman from what we understand was in running shorts and he had a running shirt on and a jacket. I he was physically in good shape.  But being in physically good shape and being able to stand up to the conditions he's facing out there right now is going to be extremely difficult."
Deputies say there are a number of intersecting trails in the area and someone not familiar with the route could easily get lost.
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

-- Theodore Roosevelt, Citizenship in a Republic, Address at the Sorbonne, April 23, 1910.
