I have been following this story for almost two weeks. It seemed strange to me that the story wasn't in headline news sooner. Once the mother and children were located, they finally were receiving state wide coverage.
This story is heartbreaking to me. I didnt know James Kim or his family, but you can tell by the story that he was just a man that loved his family.
"He was motivated -- I mean, we were having difficulty in there," Anderson said. "That was what has so frustrating; we couldn't seem to get in front of him."
Rescue crews had dropped 18 care packages in the area earlier today, each including clothing, a wool blanket, gloves, waterproof overalls, flares, a flashlight, a hand-warmer and rations. Each package also had a letter from Kim's family, authorities said. The packages were paid for by Kim's father, Spencer Kim, whom Hastings called "a devoted, driven man."
This is a situation where you just wish it would have ended differently. One of those why him moments.
This makes me sad.
