(Strip Number 4659, Original Publication Date, 4 August 1986)
Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Georgia point at a map as she tells the SAR team where Phil said he was headed. This should give them a general baseline to search from.
Panel 2: The younger SARtech tells Elly and Georgia that they've got a Twin Otter in that area and a helicopter on standby.
Panel 3: The older man says that they've also got two teams of volunteers with boats on the ready....as soon as the weather cooperates.
Panel 4: He then tells Elly and Georgia that he knows that it doesn't seem as if they're doing enough but they're doing the best they can.
Summary: As the notes will prove, he's not just talking to them. He too feels bad that he can't bring the boys home.
