    Default RESOLVED: URGENT thoughts and prayers needed

    You guys know I never do this sort of thing, but...

    My father in law went missing on a hike in the Arizona foothills this afternoon. The temps are at 100 and still climbing; his water supply is limited and his cell phone signal is weak. Apparently he became separated from the group and is now lost.

    Please, all positive vibes sent his way are welcome. My husband is a basket case and is on his way home from work, my MIL is alone in a state that's new to them (they just moved there a couple of months ago, no family nearby) and I'm at my wits' end at the moment.

    Thanks all...will update when I have news.

    Update below--he's in safe hands, dehydrated and tired and heat issues, as anticipated. We're waiting for further word. And intending on delivering a blistering lecture on carrying enough water.

    Positive thoughts and prayers for a safe and quick rescue.
    December was Christian-he knows naughty or nice.
    January was Grimm with his eyes of blue ice.
    Cian was November-when the Dark Glass set him free.
    Drustan in February made us think cherry tree.
    Dageus is March—Why, do you say?
    March has “Lips Appreciation” and “I’m in Control” day.
    Multiple Personalities-he was possessed by 13.
    When it comes to sacrifice-I’d say his was supreme.
    Return Borrowed Books week makes me think Gaulish Ghost.
    Yes, I would say March suits Dageus the most!

    Thanks all, I do very much appreciate it.

    Update--we called his phone as he was supposedly still walking around instead of just staying put like you're supposed to. Group hiking leader answered the phone, they found him, and have him back at the car. Sounds like they're headed for the medics next (presumably heatstroke/exhaustion issues). At least they have him! Waiting on a bit more word. I imagine one of us is headed to AZ tonight or tomorrow.

    So happy to hear that he was found. Please let us know how he is doing. Very scary.

    Oh Tori! So glad to hear all is well - what a scare you must have had!

    You're right you never do anything like this so you must've been in a pretty bad place **hugs**

    Parents... Who'd 'ave 'em? ;P

    Hey, Tori! Thank God he was found. We used to live in Arizona, and the heat is relentless, plus it is so arid. We lived in the foothills of the McDowells. Is that where he was hiking? I am thankful he is okay.
