Morley, Alberta – On September 12th and September 16th, 2017 the Cochrane RCMP as well as Search and Rescue teams from Cochrane, Calgary, Foothills, Didsbury and Badlands conducted searches in the Morley area for Sara Coates.
Over 50 Volunteers with the search and rescue teams contributed 644 working hours conducting the search. “Last week we attended our previous search areas to assess the region in light of the extremely dry weather this year, “says Corporal Troy Savinkoff, Cochrane RCMP “we discovered a large amount of land that was previously covered in water was now dry and we wanted to ensure that we took full advantage of this. Thanks to our partners with Search and Rescue we were able to get a large number of boots on the ground in a very short amount of time.” The RCMP are dedicated to continue their efforts to locate Sara and would like to thank all the volunteers that have aided in the search.
