Both of my brothers were on the plane too. They are survivalists and can make it through anything! We are believing for a miracle today that everyone will be found safe and sound.

Melody, we know Neal, and if Mason has to go through this, there is no one we would rather have with him. He is very capable and one of the toughest men I ever met. The photo's of his last mountain are unbeliveable. Mason is just as mentally tough as Neal is tough all over. Like you and your family, this has been the worst day of our life, but we will not give up on the boys. We pray for good news real soon.

One of my closest friends is the pilot. He knows the area well, is a good pilot and one tough guy. Keep hope alive

Good to know they are capable and strong men in this together. We are all looking forward to their safe return. I am sure Neal will be happy to add this to his crazy life adventures book someday:)

My father and Neal are great friends. My dad spoke to him just four days ago. I along with my family have been praying tearfully but hopefully for all four men. I have NO doubt that if anyone could pull thru and be of help to others, it would be Neal.

I'm also praying that they will be found safe and sound as well as for their families for the strength they will need to get through this.

Having been on a bear watching trip with Bald Mountain to Swikshak Lagoon I feel a spiritual connection with the guys on the small Beaver. I just feel they are out there waiting to be found knowing it is safest to stay with the plane. God protect them and lots of hugs and prayers to their families.
