Our beloved friend, son, brother, ski patrol Dmitri Pajitnov disappeared on Mt Rainier on July 3, 2017 at 16:15 in Washington state. He fell into a creek under a layer of ice. Search works by the National Park Service were terminated the next day, July 4th. We are looking for any help in order to resume the active search.

Dmitri is a highly experienced skier and mountaineer, we have the foresight that he is still alive and there are chances to save him.  A human can survive without food and water for two weeks so why would we stop the search after one day. We need all your help to persuade the relevant government bodies to resume the active search.

Dmitri worked as EMT and Ski Patrol saving lives so please help save his.
