The star of a Canadian reality TV show has joined in the search for missing Xbox Live gamer Brandon Crisp.
He has followed the story for a number of days and he has come to assist with the volunteer party.
Meanwhile, Simcoe.com has these remarks from Grant:
Search and rescue is what I’ve done for 12 years. I thought it’s a worthwhile cause to come out here and see if I can help organize some of the volunteers and give a little bit of guidance where necessary... This [search operation] is huge. The volunteers who are organizing this are doing an awesome job. They are going above and beyond here.
A Wikipedia entry for the Mantracker program summarizes its format:
Two people take off into the bush with a map, a compass and a head start. The tracker is on horseback, armed with a local guide and an arsenal of forensic skills. The prey have 36 hours to reach a finish line some 40 kilometers away without getting caught. How they escape is up to them.
Brandon is reportedly a fan of the show.
