    AUTHORITIES SEARCH FOR PATRICK

    Law enforcement has been draining the pond for several days now, and the heli has been flying for two days so far, documenting the water level and trying to identify anything of interest. Due to the wind, the water surface has been too choppy to get much visibility beyond a foot. I've been flying a grid each morning and afternoon at an altitude of 80', and then stitching the images together in Photoshop to create an ultra hi-res map of the pond that the SAR guys can study.

    That's 2 hours from me and a drone can see way deeper as you know than from being in a boat . If he is in there he will float
    after the gases in his body build up . They always do . We have had them take as long as a week here in some of our little rivers
    to come up and is not pretty .
