Thomas Missing in Alaska

Published by at 11:06 am under Expeditions and Experiences

My friend and co-writer here has been missing in Alaska since November 15th after having been alone in the wilderness since around September 25th. The search parties found very few clues to what have happened and the search has been suspended until further leads are discovered.

Thomas is extremely hardy and might very well still be ok, but something has definitely happened to keep him from getting back. If you want to help in any way, you can contact Teaching Drum and they will inform you what you can do in terms of donations to the search.

I wish that this great adventurer and human being will return to tell the tale.

    I am a Wisconsin boy currently living in Norway with Alaska in my dreams, so I feel oddly connected to this incident. Upon browsing this blog for articles involving animal hides, I read about how Thomas has gone missing. I hope he comes out someday just to let everyone know he’s okay. I really do. Please do keep us posted. Thanks,
