He said he along with his staff will exhaust every option in attempts to locate those still missing. "It's not easy, but it's part of our job and we'll do our job," said the governor. "Our people are good at doing their job and they have responded extremely well and if they can save somebody if they will. I'm convinced of that. I'd put our people up against anybody in the country."
23 people are still missing. Three of those were known to have been at the Albert Pike campsite.
There's been talk of communication problems hampering search efforts, but the governor says that should no longer be an issue. "The communications have been improved with some portable and temporary cell towers by both Verizon and AT & T," he explained.
