-After a restless night, we’re back at it. This morning we will have infrared capability in the helicopter along with thousands of images of the search area from small non military drones. These are provided by a local company Skybotica. We’re deeply grateful.
-T-Mobile has released all of the data they have from Hari Simran’s phone. Unfortunately, his GPS was turned off. Now we are trying to work with specialists to triangulate his location during his last messages using cell towers.
-National media is covering the story and getting out the word.
Hari Simran’s family and friends are beginning to stream in and help with the search effort.
