Here is the updated Search press release that just went out.

Press release regarding Overdue skier 3-15-18 1630 hours Bear Valley Mountain Resort, Alpine County, California. On March 14th at 11:30 pm Mrs. Jane Drummond-Mullarkey reported to the Alpine County Sheriff’s Office that her husband Thomas Mullarkey, had not returned to their cabin in Arnold, California, after a day of skiing at the Bear Valley Mountain Resort located in Alpine County, California. Alpine County Sheriff’s Office personnel located Mr. Mullarkey’s car at the Resort shortly after 11:30 pm. Due to extreme avalanche danger a search of the surrounding terrain could not be initiated during the hours of darkness. At approximately 7 am on March 15th members of Calaveras County Search and Rescue, Alpine County Search and Rescue, resort ski patrol, and Sheriff’s Office personnel resumed the search. An Air National Guard and California Highway Patrol Helicopter were deployed as well, but were grounded almost immediately upon arriving at Bear Valley due to low visibility, wind, and snow. Search conditions continue to be very hazardous due to extreme avalanche conditions. Mr. Mullarkey is a sixty-five-year-old white male adult, 5’ 8” tall, approximately 150 pounds with grey hair and blue eyes. Mr. Mullarkey is known to be an advanced skier and in good health. He is believed to be wearing the same ski suit as depicted in the attached photos. If anyone has information that may lead to determining Mr. Mullarkey's whereabouts, please call Undersheriff Spencer Case at (530) 694-2231 ex: 357.

Pretty sure that's going to be an expensive tow bill....

And yesterday I got sunburned!

The annual snow play trip by folks from the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation was a success. Bear Valley Public Safety and friends brought out all the fun snow machines.

Here is the press release regarding the tragic incident in Kirkwood last night.

Alpine County offices and the Court closed today. I would miss you all way too much so I caught a ride into work with these fine gentlemen! Note - that back seat really isn't very comfortable......

Here is the recording of the NWS weather briefing this morning.

Storm-Nado - catchy 🤣

Happy stormy Thursday all! Here is a link to the recording of yesterday's presentation by the National Weather Service in Reno. I will be attending today's briefing and will share it with you as soon as they send it out. What the common denominator is - if you don't need to travel today and tomorrow, don't. It's excellent weather for cookie baking or binge watching your favorite series!

Owner Located!! Who in Woodfords is missing this nice yellow lab? Call Dispatch to claim. 530-694-2231 X0

I wanted to share this with our facebook followers. Pretty neat!

Because the east slope of Alpine County utilizes Reno television and radio stations, they will also benefit from this system.

The new Deputies are progressing well with their training. Yesterday was Patrol Vehicle Removal 101.

*EDITED* DOG FOUND!! This pup is missing from Woodfords near the school. If you've seen this dog please call Dispatch.
