#BringGordHome: Family Press Release

Monday Aug. 22, 2016
North Delta, BC
On Sunday Aug. 14, 2016 Gordon Sagoo went missing while hiking the Baby Munday Peak in Chilliwack, BC. Since then the Chilliwack Search and Rescue in conjunction with the Chilliwack RCMP and various SAR teams from the lower mainland have combed the mountain looking for Gordon. At this point they have decided to suspend the search.
The Sagoo and Jandu family would like to thank the Chilliwack Search and Rescue, Chilliwack RCMP and all the other associated SAR teams that have been involved in this search. Your courageous and tireless efforts have been nothing short of remarkable.
We have received an overwhelming amount of support from family, friends and the community. This is a true testament to Gordon’s character. We want to thank each and every one of you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your love, support and kind words. They are what has kept us going.
The family will continue the search privately via other channels. We have not given up hope of finding Gordon and it is important for us, and for all that have been affected, to gain closure. We express our deepest gratitude to everyone that has donated funds to this effort. Your generosity is what will bring Gordon home.
We need continued support in order to keep our efforts going. To contribute now, go to www.gofundme.com/2k63gdg
We stress that we do not want any personal or individual groups going up the mountain to search themselves. If anyone does want to go on a hike in that area it is imperative to please stay on the trail and be safe.
We need to learn from this situation and do not want anyone else’s life to be put at risk.
For any future correspondence, or media related questions, we can be reached at BringGordHome@gmail.com
