Marcel was heartbroken. He began imagining his life without Annette and how terrible that would be. They were together for more than three decades and there was no way he was allowing their life together to end like this.
Never in his wildest dreams could he imagine that the previous morning was, possibly, the last one by his beloved wife.
Minimizing the Search Area
No one was going to give up. The weather was harsh, and the areas that they were operating in were huge. All they needed was something to narrow down the search radios. If they could concentrate on smaller spaces, that would increase their chances of finding something.
Annette and her three dogs were somewhere out there waiting to be rescued. They couldn't let them down. No one was planning on giving up just yet.
Body Heat Detection
The helicopters were observing the land from above and SAR was investigating the grounds. The sky forces used a thermal imaging camera. This device can detect body heat, and they were praying this would be their salvation.
Unfortunately, the police up in the helicopters came up with nothing. There were too many trees concentrated in such a big area, it was almost impossible to notice or find anything.
Not Giving Up Yet
The rescue teams weren't going to stop the searches no matter what the outcomes were. It didn't matter if Annette and the dogs were dead or alive, they were coming home.
The clouds blanketed the horizon, the temperatures yet again dropped and a quilt of darkness covered the sky. The second day came to an end and the rescue teams had no choice but to postpone the searches to the following morning. Would Annette ever be found?
A Sign of Hope
The weather conditions and the overall situation didn't make it any easier for Marcle to hold on to hope and remain optimistic. Even if they did eventually find Annette, what condition would she be in?
It was freezing, it was wet, and it was dark. Everything was going against them until they finally came across something that would shed some light. They were about to discover something that would lead them onto the right track toward Annette and the dogs.
