Hi, I am from Washington and very familiar with Granite Falls since I spent alot of my summer's there. There is a Ranger Station outside of town headed up towards Monte Cristo which is suppose to keep a log of people coming in. They will help you more than anyone else. Also it is possible that your son could have hiked the trail in to Monte Cristo as the campground there is really nice. However, its a day in and a day back out. There is no cell reception in most of those areas and lots of campgrounds. Again, go to the Ranger Station, google it and it will come up, and they will help you. They also are all volunteers and work with Search and Rescue. You do need to file a missing persons report with either the MP's or lakewood police department. By doing this, it will enable search and rescue to call volunteers and help you. The media will not publish a picture or report on the store until one has been done. Granite Falls is a very small town with one grocery store, a gas station and roughly 5,000 people. I would not recommend going door to door because the residents like to keep to them selves and don't go hiking on holidays or weekends. I hope this helps you and keep us posted. Again try the Ranger Station as they will help in searching the area and providing more information.
Well I am faxing his photo to all the Hospitals I can find fax numbers for up in that general area just in case he has to go to one God forbid. But I have never been up there so I don't really know which hospitals are up there.
Well i will tell you what if need be we can all get together there is power with numbers! I pray he calls you soon or just comes walking in the door, but I for one will be more than willing to help you look if you need it!
I'm so sorry you're going through this.. just an idea - maybe go to the news stations with his photo and start a missing person report on there?? Get his photo on tv.. maybe he doesn't know what's going on or is just lost? Might be a good place to start, with every news station!!
I am so sorry if you need help making flyers or anything i can try and help i cannt even imagine what you are going through my prayers are with you and you family if i can do anything please let me know i will try and help I cant do alot cause i am sort of on bed rest right now but i will help any way possible
