ANACONDA - Volunteer search teams did not organize a search party to look for Tammy Salle on Thursday.
Salle is the Anaconda woman who has been missing for more than a week. Volunteers have met two days in a row to search in Anaconda and the surrounding area.
Members of the 15-90 Search and Rescue in Butte deemed it unwise for volunteers to search in the cold weather. The National Weather Service predicted lows at or below zero early Thursday morning.
Representatives with Search and Rescue said untrained search teams face multiple dangers. Volunteers could potentially end up lost, get frostbite and hypothermia. Search and Rescue recommends wearing multiple layers if you are out in cold weather. Wear moisture wicking clothing to keep perspiration away from your body.
Search and Rescue said the most important advice is to never go anywhere alone.
"If you are with a group stay with a group," said Bill Gibson, first executive officer with 15-90 Search and Rescue in Butte. "Have one person in charge. That person needs to be accountable for everybody in that party at all times."
If you plan on going to search for Salle, make sure someone knows where you are and you can communicate with them while you are out.
People are asked to call the Anaconda Police Department with any information at (406)563-5241.
