Breaking news


I can see the headlines- girl with sequinned cardigan ignores search area. This very red girl is me, in the Taranaki Rescue helicopter on Sunday scouring the bush for a missing helicopter. I think I was writing my intro when this was taken by the sneaky crewman. It was pretty amazing going in the chopper, and the dudes were really nice, even gave me a sandwich when he landed on some beach to re-fuel.

Looking good!!! I'd watch you on the news. Unfortunately we don't get the BBC in South Dakota.

Or Sydney. But am sure your piece was earnest and thought-provoking, in the good way. Did things eventually have a happy ending?

No, it turned out badly. After two weeks of searching, the bodies were found in a patch of scrub in open farmland. Wrote a story that upset everybody, and got a bit of flack for reporting "bad news". Them's the breaks.
