Authorities called this “highly out of character for them.” Over 130 people from across the Bay Area helped in the search Monday by ground and air, authorities said.There’s no evidence of foul play, Sgt. Brenton Schneider of the Marin County Sheriff’s Office told ABC San Francisco station KGO-TV. “We are still considering this a search and rescue. This hasn’t gone to a recovery,” Schneider told KGO. “We still believe there is a strong likelihood they could still be alive, and that is why we have so many ground crews out looking for them.” Anyone with information is asked to call the Marin County Sheriff’s Office at 415-479-2311.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
