    AZ - Roy Harris, 28, Tucson, July 2008 - Presumed Drowned

    22 July 08

    Police have suspended the search for a Tucson man swept away by rushing water after getting stuck in a wash.

    A police spokesman said Tuesday authorities have no plans to resume looking for 28-year-old Roy Harris, who tried crossing a washed-out road Saturday.

    Witnesses told police they saw Harris' car going north when it became disabled by the water. At some point, Harris got out of the car and tried to make it to safety.

    Harris was then caught in a current that leads to the Santa Cruz River.
    Dozens of rescuers on foot, in the water and in helicopters searched for Harris through Sunday.

    Police said at least two other drivers got stuck in the Tucson area as rains poured down Saturday night, but they were rescued.

    I can only speak for myself and what I have learned and seen since being a member here on this forum, so I will share some indights from my own opinion only.

    First, so sad to read this news about Roy, no matter how long ago it happened. I say "Roy" because it is as if we get to know the people that the threads here are dedicated to. So much time is spent learning about the person, and the situation, so that someone here might be able to share their expertise or ideas to help to either find someone, or solve a case.

    I don't think that any of the posters in your brother's thread here necessarily knew him, but they saw the story and it touched them enough to post it here. It sounds like it was not too much of a mystery what happened to your brother - they knew what had happened, but not where he was - so there was not much we could do to help from here.

    I lost a brother under very tragic circumstances also, and I live in Arizona, so when I saw that there was a new post here on Roy's thread today, I wanted to check it out.

    If you want the thread pulled from here, I think you can ask a moderator to help do that for you. But if you want it to remain here, that's a nice idea too. The folks here are very kind and helpful and compassionate.

    Again, my condolences to you... may you be filled with wonderful memories of your brother now and always. hugs to you.
