Hello, my name is Yanakeen. I am Christopher See's mom. My son is one of the five children who were lost at Eagle River when they took a wrong turn and were caught in the dark.
I just want to say thank you very much to the Boy Scout leaders and Search and Rescue for finding the kids. And thanks to the State Troopers, too.
It is really nice to know that there are people in our community that care enough to take the time to train as rescuers and then are willing to help in times of need.
I believe these young people have learned a very valuable lesson of not getting ahead of their hiking leaders. I'm glad the kids knew it was important to stay together until they were found.
