    RAT-SAR would like to thank Haywood Search and Rescue, all the rescuers, incident management personnel, and agencies who put their all into finding Chad Seger. The terrain and remote nature of the missions made for a difficult search operation, and while this was not the result we were hoping for, we were honored to play a small role in bringing closure to this situation and to work with such fine people. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the Seger family and our thanks goes out to every search and rescue technician, law enforcement official, volunteer, and agency who participated in this search. Thank you for all you do.

    Sad ending for his family but closure that is better than never “knowing”.

    We had already decided that Tuesday was our last operational period due to other things we had to get done. It's hard to leave an operation when the objective is not complete, even though volunteers have to do it all the time due to work, family and other issues, so it was a sigh of relief for all the team members to hear that radio call that he'd been found. Not the outcome we had hoped for but it did give closure to the family and to the rescuers who had been out there searching for him.
