Unlike others, I'm not worried that they haven't heard from either of his locator transmitters. They both only transmit a fairly low-powered FM signal on 121.5 MHz. FM is line of sight, so any terrain would block the signal. Also, the batteries would both be dead after about 8 hours. A $500 personal locator beacon would have been a better choice over that $5000 Breitling wristwatch. The Civil Air Patrol didn't even start looking for him for 6 hours, so it's probable the locator transmitter batteries were dead shortly after they started looking. With water, he could survive for a long time. I am confident they'll find him soon.

Who cares about a missing millionaire. What about all the missing children we see staring back at us when visiting the grocery store?

At least he didn't slowly die in front of his computer while nobody read his posts.

I wonder if they would be going to all of this expense and effort to find him if he wasn't famous?

Couple in Fort Collins found. Did anybody check out their money or fame before joining the effort to find them. Pull your head out of your butt and think once.

They search like hell for anyone lost in the Colorado Rockies. So I would say yes to your question.
