Sam went hiking in Vesper Peak which is 75 miles NE of Seattle Wednesday morning. She is an avid and experienced hiker, she was alone and tends to hike alone. As of this morning (8/3/18) the military and the search rescue teams were able to ping movement on her phone. Sam's friends, family, and also the rescue teams are asking for help in setting up deposit bags which can help Sam survive and also find her way to them. The supplies for these bags are costly and many of us are trying to help them from long distance and this is the best way to help fund them on their efforts. 

Here is an explanation directly from Kevin (Sam's boyfriend) on what these bags will do for her and the exact nature of the supplies: 

I need your help. We are setting up deposit bags to leave in the forest. The items they contain are as follows:

Food - needs to be completely sealed. No home made. Need most bang for buck, high calorie count. Cliff bars are a big help.
Flashlight with set of extra batteries
Compass - tiny. If Sam finds the bags each one can be labeled with a general direction for closest trail or road
Pancho - sets are good but small and light is key
Parachord
Pair of socks
2 lighters
Knife
Caution tape

I’ve left out water. There are lots of rivers and glacial feed. Clean water. If Sam is on the move she can get water and since weight and size are key I’m packing the bags with other essentials.

No bag larger than a 1 gallon bag

These are all the items I have in the bags so far. Cost was roughly $1000 for twenty bags but I’m buying out this small town and prices aren’t cheap.

The idea is for all search and rescue/mountaineers to carry this on trail. Tie off to a tree and run an entire caution tape line 400ft through the forest for each bag giving her a better chance to spot them and get some provisions. Having trouble finding caution tape out here. Skinny small rolls are best.

These funds are being distributed directly to Michael Dares (brother of Kevin) who is heading up the organization of the bags and supplies.  

Thank you all for your prayer, good vibes and donations in helping bring Sam home!

Hi guys!

We are again pushing for a raise in funds for Sam's rescue. With the new structure of the mission underway we need to continue to fund supplies, fuel and funds for the helicopters and the team out on the mountain. Please continue to send your prayers, love and positive vibes and share, share, share Sam's story and pages!

Love and light let's get her TODAY!

Hi everyone!

It's time to update the gofundme. We are raising our goal again and asking for a push on donations at this time and of course to share this page. Currently dogs, drone operations, helicopter searches, and many other means to private search efforts are being sought and funded. We appreciate all the help we have received and continue to receive monetarily and non-monetarily. You guys have been amazing and your genuine love and support in finding Sam keeps us all going. Please remember any left over funds will be donated to the search and rescue teams who have been so amazing to us along this journey. Please continue to follow and share Sam's story on Facebook (and all social media outlets), continue sending your prayers and good vibes to Sam and all of her family and friends and those searching. #loveandlight #today #findsamsayers

An update regarding this gofundme and all others out there per Amy Harders (Kevin's sister):

We wanted to make a post first and foremost thanking all of the volunteers and groups who are working towards finding Sam. You are so selfless and we thank you so so so much! We do believe all of you are genuinely helping to find her and working towards that goal.

Due to some confusing questions yesterday. We do want to say we are not affiliated with any go fund me besides the original one set up to help with Sam. We cannot vet for other groups. Feel free to donate or help these groups as you see fit, but at your own risk.

Our original fund involves search efforts (survival bags, private resources dogs/drones/fliers/search groups), sams parents, and for Sam when found. We 100% support anyone who wants to donate to search groups for Sam, sams family (parents) and anyone else, we were just saying we can’t vet for others only ourselves.

Thank you to everyone again for helping us in the search for our girl.

Hi everyone! Let me start by saying again, your generous and gracious donations have been amazing thus far. There is no way we could have accomplished any of the ground we have without this amazing gofundme for Sam. You guys have truly showed up in what is the most difficult time of our lives. As of today there are multiple agencies on the mountain who are searching in many different ways and they will continue to cover ground throughout the night. Unfortunately, as the days go on the amazing volunteers who have donated their time, energy and resources to the search for Sam will start to scale back. In no way is this a sign of giving up but it is a protocol volunteers must face in any situation. We are in the predicament of needing to hire private search parties and K-9 units, along with any other needs that arise over the process of bringing Sam home. With that being said we are again raising the gofundme goal. We appreciate your time, prayers, love and well wishes during this time, this has carried us along more than you know. Please continue to share Sam's story, her Facebook page, and this gofundme.
