The family of Ray Hickman would like to thank the Cannon Beach Police and Fire Departments; the Coast Guard; the Search and Rescue teams from Clatsop, Tillamook, Washington, Multnomah and Clackamas counties; Mountain Wave Search and Rescue; all the volunteers, neighbors and friends who spent time and effort in such inclement weather to search for Ray when he went missing on Jan. 30. Many of you are still looking as time permits and we appreciate that so much.

We’d also like to thank everyone who donated money and the man from Hamlet who lent the use of his drone.

We’ve learned that many Cannon Beach and Seaside restaurants donated food for the searchers. And we know that many from the community donated food for the searchers and for us. Thank you all.

Such an outpouring of support from the entire community has been just overwhelming, and very special. It keeps us going every day. We appreciate all of it so very much.
