Ceremony at State Capitol honors Noah Pippin
The family of Noah Pippin gathered at the State Capitol this afternoon to remember his life and thank those who were involved in recovering his remains.
Pippin went missing while hiking in the Bob Marshal Wilderness in September of 2010. For the past 2 years, the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff's office along with Search and Rescue and other state and local agencies have been working together to find him.
Pippin's remains were finally found in August. Today, his family and Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton thanked the individuals and agencies involved in completing this mission.
Sheriff Dutton says, "It was like looking for a needle in a haystack, but I credit Search and Rescue using science, I credit the 2 deputies that went above and beyond to make sure that we were in that search area."
Coming up tonight at 10 pm, we'll hear from Noah Pippin's parents about today's emotional ceremony.
