Yesterday, on August 19, 2018 at around noon, we received a tip from a fisherman. Members of the Park and Gallatin County Sheriff’s Offices immediately responded to the scene and recovered the body of James Anderson from the Yellowstone River near Springdale.
We are thankful to be able to return James to his family. When such an unimaginable tragedy occurs, it reminds us of what really matters: family and friends. We have many thanks to share in the days to come but we are truly blessed to live in a place where people genuinely care about each other, even when strangers. Thank you all for the overwhelming support!
