29 July - 2017 Missing Teen at the 320 Guest Ranch

Fifteen members of the BSSAR team, three members from the Gallatin Valley Dog team and a helicopter were dispatched to a early evening report of a missing 17 year old female. She and her family were staying at the 320 Guest Ranch. The teenager had a history of drug abuse and was consider a suicide risk. The BSSAR used dirt bikes, side by sides and hiking boots to search the trails, out buildings and river near the 320 Guest Ranch. Through a number of efforts she was located unharmed in a town about one hundred miles east of Big Sky. It is a humbling note that so many volunteers will give of their time during the hieght of summer season missing family BBQs, the Professional Bull Riding event, concerts as well as dinner.
