NORTH BEND, Wash. (AP) — The search for a missing Florida skydiver in a wing suit in the Washington Cascade foothills will continue by helicopter as the weather allows.
The ground search for 29-year-old Kurt Ruppert, of Lake City, Fla., was suspended Sunday after searchers with the King County sheriff’s office covered 9 square miles on and around Mount Si (SY), a steep and heavily forested 4,200-foot peak about 30 miles east of Seattle.
Ruppert was taking turns with two friends who were waiting on the ground Thursday when he jumped out of a helicopter at 6,500 feet.
