According to Badlands Search and Rescue Service, in a Facebook post Sept. 17, on Sept. 16, Badlands Search and Rescue along with the Dawson County Sheriff department performed ground searches in an attempt to locate Renee Arcand. To date, there is still no sign or clues that have been found that definitively point to Arcand's disappearance.
On Sept. 16, Badlands Search and Rescue members searched a total of 19.25 miles of roadway on Dawson County Rd 551 and Montana State Highway 16 from the junction with CR 551 north to the Dawson/Richland County line and south to the Thirteen Mile Creek crossing before concluding operations due to loss of light.
Back on June 26, Arcand disappeared from Intake. She was last seen at the Intake campground. After searching for her for a few days, her companion reported her missing on July 1. On the evening of Aug. 13, a Richland County resident found what they felt were human skeletal remains along the Yellowstone River, downstream from Intake, while participating in recreational activities, but the identity of those remains are still being investigated by the state crime labs.
In Badland's post they expressed their appreciation of the motorists that slowed down and proceeded with caution upon seeing the emergency lights ahead and their personnel on foot. They are also asking hunters, anglers, boaters, and anyone else on the Yellowstone River if they find anything in question to leave it and call 911. There are additional searches planned to be performed by Badlands Search and Rescue in collaboration with Dawson Sheriff Department and Dawson County SAR before the winter weather hits.
