LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Lake County Search and Rescue has received a grant from a national organization that will aid it in purchasing new equipment. The group received $3,950.83 for six Garmin Rino two-way radios and a rescue mule litter wheel with handles.The funds were awarded by the Modesto-based Carole Sund/Carrington Memorial Reward Foundation's Laci and Conner Search and Rescue Fund in an effort to help Lake County Search and Rescue be better prepared and “therefore be more successful in their efforts to safely return missing persons to their loved ones.”

“I am deeply appreciative for all of the volunteers who provide their time and expertise for Search and Rescue operations,” Sheriff Rod Mitchell said. “I would like to thank the Laci and Conner Search and Rescue Fund for awarding us this new equipment. This equipment will enhance our volunteers’ abilities to return loved ones to their families in a safe and timely manner.”

Sharon Rocha founded the Laci and Conner Search and Rescue Fund in memory of her daughter, Laci Peterson, and grandson Conner.

“Many people spent countless hours helping in the search for my daughter, Laci,” Rocha said. “I believe that every missing person deserves to be found and returned to their loved ones. We hope to aid in that effort by providing funds to assist in search and rescue operations.”

The fund's purpose is to provide financial assistance to law enforcement agencies and nonprofit organizations involved in search and rescue operations. These organizations are able to apply for financial assistance for search and rescue training and the necessary equipment in order to improve their search and rescue capabilities.Since its inception in December 2005, the Laci and Conner Search and Rescue Fund has funded more than $271,000 in grants to 62 organizations in 19 states.
