Just got a look at the map with the NEK-9/UVWRT search areas and the location of the found body. He was well outside their search area - I have no idea about any other teams' areas.
As an FYI, the teams searched the area the email talked about (east of Hermit Lake, west of PNVC) thoroughly - I hope that person doesn't continue to think no one was looking there.
Breeze - I, too, am glad the family will have closure. Even if this is not Mr. Shintani (awaiting autopsy), some family will get closure.
Gwynna, that there WILL be closure is the most important part of this particular recovery, for A family and all the SAR involved.. There may be a wait for officialdom to declare a positive ID. It was an unattended death and there must be an international protocol in such cases.
Mr. Shintani's family has been monitoring this site, and I offer this up in hope for them that there will be a positive ID.
Peter Shintani is currently the only ( reported) missing person in the area.
