Jeff and his dog Blue took a mountain drive to beat the summer heat on a blistering July 25th day in 2012. Jeff wanted to run his beloved dog one last time before departing the next day on his annual Colorado fly fishing trip with his dad and brother. His Dad Sherwin knew something was wrong when Jeff was over 2 hours late to a scheduled dinner with him as they were planning on driving out together early the next morning. Later that evening Sherwin called the Pinal County Sheriff to report his missing son. The next day, he and his son Danny started a 14-day search to find out what happened to Jeff and Blue. Arizona's Superstition Search and Rescue joined the search efforts and what transpired then is inspirational, heart warming and a memorable tribute to the kind and wonderful person Jeff was to everyone he touched.
