Yellowstone River Search and Rescue Event

Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office Captain Jim Anderson was involved in the boat accident that occurred on the Yellowstone River yesterday in Park County. Jim’s wife Angie passed away on the scene. Jim and his daughter were able to make it to shore safely, but their son James is still missing. Jim and his family want to thank all of the emergency responders and Search & Rescue volunteers for their efforts in attempting to find James. Sheriff Gootkin stated, “Family is everything, it’s why we do what we do and it’s also why it hurts that much more when it’s our family. We hurt for Jim and his family. They have a long, difficult road ahead but they are not alone. We will help and support them no matter what they need or how long it takes.” A special thanks to Park County Sheriff Scott Hamilton, his Office, and everyone involved in the search for James. We ask that the public not respond to the scene to assist. We have all the help we need at this time.
