(Gallatin County, Mont.) On Tuesday, September 3, at 7:46 pm, Gallatin County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue and the Gallatin Gateway Fire Department responded to a backcountry search. A 64-year-old dementia patient had wandered away from a fishing lodge in a heavily wooded area along the Gallatin River. A searcher and a family member located the missing person at 8:09 pm. Sheriff Gootkin would like to thank the family for calling for help immediately – faster response times usually result in better outcomes, especially if darkness, weather, or other factors make search conditions more difficult.
