The Search for N2700Q

April 24 - May 02 2009

“On Sunday, Sept. 24, 2006, at 10:43 am, a 1966 Cessna 182, tail# 2700Q, departed Deer Valley Airport near Phoenix (DVT) with full fuel tanks and disappeared. Although no flight plan was filed, it is believed the aircraft was headed for Sedona (SEZ) and was expected to return to Deer Valley that same afternoon or evening” (www.n2700q.com). The plane contained two occupants, William Westover and Marcy Randolph.

The adventure science athletes are joining forces with a well-organized American team to provide ground searchers in the Sedona area from April 24 - May 02 2009. A significant amount of research has been conducted on the existing data and several high-priority targets have been identified. The team feels strongly that there will be a successful conclusion to this search mission.

The athletes will again bring their unique skill set to this rugged and vast wilderness area that is rife with Native American ruins and abundant wildlife. The searchers will focus on the challenging steep-sided canyons that could easily conceal a small aircraft. This expedition will test the adventure science athlete’s endurance and resolve, as they will have to be entirely self supported each day as outside support is very difficult to reach once they drop into the canyons.
