Carl Foote Search Is Over


I have been waiting for more news on this story, but none has been forthcoming since this August 12th story in the Pasadena Star News.


Link here.

An article that ran on the Pasadena Now site on Sunday noted the following (link):

Foote is known for his support and Board role at Foothill Unity Center. Founded in 1980, the Center is the primary provider of food, case management/crisis help, and access to health care resources across eleven San Gabriel Valley cities.

In Carl's memory this would be a good organization to support. Link here.

  1. Do they know what happened to him. Was it the result of a fall?

    1. Nothing has been said. The County Coroner has his body and hasn't issued a report yet.

    2. Autopsy HAS been completed. Let's get our buddy and pal Carl buried with all the spirit that was once Carl. Sierra Madre lost one of her finest citizens.

  2. Wonder how many on the list before they get to him. :(

    2. "Protesters pull down Confederate statue in North Carolina", headlines on CNN. Some issues bring out the barbaric side in us humans, a little disturbing to say the least.

    3. Did anyone get killed? Statue fall on anybody?

  3. Carl was a genuinely nice guy. He and his family lived across the street from me and he was part of the neighborhood gang. Without Sierra Madre Search and Rescue, and partnering agencies, he might never have been found. One of the true treasures of Sierra Madre is our SM Search and Rescue, an all volunteer organization. Please consider donating to them. http://www.smsr.org

    1. I hear the search and rescue team wants to form a union and go the way of the fire department

    2. Did your dog tell you that?

  4. I bet if the L.A. County Sheriffs department was in charge this person could have been found sooner? You get what you over pay for.

    1. He can't. He has no place else to go. Warm milk and a cookie might work.

    2. I have a friend who's retired LA County Search and Rescue and with whom I consulted after I heard about Carl failing to return home. He said "Although sometimes dealing with the SMS & R can be difficult at times (because they're volunteers who have other jobs and not full time paid employees) you will NEVER find a group of more passionate, tenacious qualified group of search and rescue folks than the volunteers at the SMS &R." Why disparage a group when they're mourning the loss of one of their own? I was additionally told that the other agencies were brought in to assist because the clock was ticking; more man power, and additional experts... just favored the odds of finding him. Please, if you have nothing kind or positive to say about the efforts of those agencies dedicated to saving lives and assisting others in need, don't.

    3. Thanks for the thoughtful comment.

    Thank you for bringing him back home.

    4. Sometimes people will say things that you might not like. You need to become more accepting and try to discern why it is they say the things they do. That is how a community becomes stronger.

    5. Yes innuendo is very intuitive and helps build the "community" whatever that may be.

  7. 8:34, if you know something the rest of us don't know, do tell. Are you new to the area or just new to being an adult? You did see that the County was involved in the search?

    3. You can tell when important issues are about to break. Some individuals start posting very unpleasant things on this blog, then turn around and tell their friends The Tattler is awful because of all the unpleasant things found in the comments. Which, of course, were all posted by the same people. Their hope is to discredit what is said here, or drive people away. Same old nonsense. I deleted a bunch today. I left the milder ones.

  9. May comfort be provided to this family during this difficult time. Its times like this that shows the community does pull together. A special thank you to all who worked tirelessly to find him. Life is precious.

  10. Even a Socialist like Bernie, did better in the polls then Hillary; its called likeability, and nobody liked Hillary that's why she lost. Dont give that 3 million votes argument, that only supports that all Dems in California got out the vote for her.

    1. Makes sense. Trump ran his companies on Russian money, so why not run the country on Chinese cash? Still flimming the flam.

    2. Yes, it did take some debt to save the economy from the crash caused by W and his Republican cronies. The next one that will be caused by the clown-in-chief will be worse.

    1. A special thanks to Sierra Madre Search and Rescue and to all the partner agencies that located our resident Mr. Foote. Let us not forget all that the goodness that the S.& R. have done for us for the past, 65 years.

  14. Politico reported that as far back as 2014-2016, President Obama ignored Russia's interference with meddling in US elections.

    1. What does that have to do with the current president? And why are you posting this nonsense on a thread that has no connection whatsoever to your obsession?

  15. All anyone had to do was to step outside their home at night and look up at the mountain side, the search lights, flashlights covered the entire mountain range from Bailey Canyon to Manazanita Ridge.
    Thank you Mountain rescue teams and all those involved, special thanks go out to the Sierra Madre Search and Rescue.

  16. Today's post is about a tragedy that happened to a friend and neighbor in Sierra Madre. The national political posts are out of line and insulting today's post. Can't you political posters give it a rest today out of respect for Carl, his family, his friends, and all the efforts that went into finding him. Show some respect.

  18. Carl was a good person. Played basketball with him for many years at Memorial Park. Never had an unkind word for anyone and was always very friendly to all. Got to meet him a few times through Foothill Unity Center where he donated a fair amount of his time.
