On Thursday, Oct. 16, 12 TR members deployed on Operation: Albermarle SAR Support to assist in the search for missing University of Virginia student Heather Graham. The operational period began at 0800 with a thorough brief by the Chief of the Charlottesville Police Department.
Eight organizations/agencies were represented with just under 50 personnel on site to support the ongoing SAR efforts, which began on Sept. 8. Our team will remain on site through the weekend and more volunteers are expected to arrive today.
