Update on Missing Snowboarder 22 year old, Jerad Gerlach...(No Sightings Yet as of 6:45am Monday Morning)

Bear Valley, CA...We spoke with a very tired Deputy Sheriff, Rick Stevens, as he was donning his snowmobile helmet to take another run in search of the missing Santa Cruz snowboarder. Bear Valley Search & Rescue, Bear Valley Ski Patrol & the Alpine County Sheriffs Office have been searching since late afternoon for 22 year old Jared Gerlach who was reported missing when he failed to meet up with his friends as planned. The full search has been interrupted for the night. With the blizzard storm conditions and extremely high avalanche danger it was decided to resume the full search at first light....


Conditions should allow a helicopter to join the search in the morning. Deputy Stevens said since the overnight temps are fairly mild the hope is that the young man just got lost in the snow storm and inadvertently left the ski resort boundaries and the helicopter will spot him quickly in the morning.

When we were heading up to BVMR just after 10pm there was a long steam of vehicles heading down the hill. They had just called the full search for the night. At the hill there were still several patches of lights moving in the darkness as personnel continued the search.

It is known that he is almost certainly still in the area. His vehicle is still in the parking lot and he was slated to meet his friends later in the afternoon. He was dressed for the weather and in most cases like this there is a good outcome.

The avalanche danger is a very real concern. There was a small avalanche on the side of Hwy 207 that dumped a bit of snow on the road that Caltrans was called in to plow.

We will continue to keep you posted as we know more. And please keep this young man in your thoughts tonight.
