They searched the Anchorage area tirelessly, contacting individuals along trails, placing flyers around town. Herb was found 5 days later; cold, wet and tired. When #4207’s Auxiliary Sister Marsha Lawton inquired with AST as to what the Auxiliary could do for them, their only request was to pay their annual insurance premium.
