On March 31, 2015 at approximately 2:13 am, District I patrol deputies requested Aviation and K-9 for an area search along Lettuce Lake Park. The vehicle of a 24-year-old male with suicidal intentions was located near the park entrance. Aviation arrived on scene first and began searching. K-9 Max and Master Deputy Surrency arrived and began to track north from the vehicle. Sheriff's pilots O'Shannon and Gray began to search ahead of K-9 deputies when the pilots picked up a heat source and quickly directed Master Deputy Surrency and K-9 Max to the area. K-9 deputies located the subject unconscious. Deputies moved the subject from the thick wooded area to a safe location where EMS administered care.
