Can anybody tell me what site number he was at in Shady Rest?
I was gonna look around in there while the campground is still closed. Thanks.

Hi Biotch, I believe Matt was staying at site #164 in New Shady Rest.

What happened to your earlier advice:
What I suggested to maverick01 was that if he and his personal
friends that he knows and can vouche for their capabilites want
to go in and search...great. To try and enlist volunteers who
are complete strangers is to cross a line into very dodgy
territory.....a place where you do not belong.

be aware that you assume legal liability by merely organizing
this activity. It sounds borderline ridiculous but sadly, it's
the times we all live in. Anyone involved is exposed; well-meaning
people have been sued after a "volunteer" effort ended badly.
Piles of waivers won't help. Cragman's comment may be due to
feeling a legal and an ethical burden would be forced on him.

Does this not apply now?

maverick01....please take note that I am only interested in partners for my own efforts with people that I know......I'm in no way trying to round up myriad search groups amongst strangers.

I always cringe when I see this thread at the top of the page, fearing that someone has made, in my opinion, an unfortunate discovery of Matts remains.
His disappearance has changed my operations. I no longer head out alone without letting someone know where I'll be. Before this, I would do so without a second thought.

Thank you Matt for making my life safer.

Is it possible? Trying hard not to get hopes up. I only heard about the story because I have Mono County Sheriff's page in my Facebook feed.

This post refers to the Casa Diablo range, which I am unfamiliar with. However when I searched for the story on Google, I found one of the articles mentioned Crowley Lake which would only be 15 miles from Mammoth.

I am checking with the Mono County Sheriff to determine if the age of the remains are consistent with the time Matt went missing and whether the location is likely. I will post when I get a response later today.

The word I am getting from one of the SAR Team members that was on the op is these bones are "pretty dog on old".

But then that don't mean much...
