The  Sproule Family would like to thank everyone for their incredible dedication and support during the time that Jamie was missing in the bush.

Jamie is now making steady progress at St. Joseph's Hospital. He still needs lots of rest to recover from his harrowing experience so he is limited to visits from immediate family.

We want first of all to thank the RCMP, Search and Rescue, and the Cumberland Fire and Rescue for their compassion and dedication.

We also want to thank the hundreds of community volunteers who went out on search parties three times a day. Many had been trained by assisting Search and Rescue. Jamie was found by a group of volunteers working a very tight grid formation in very dense and greened over logging slash not far from our home. He had been missing for almost six days.

Thanks also to the many people who provided nutritious food for the search parties and the family.

And, last but not least, a big thank you goes out to all the people who have been sending prayers and well wishes to Jamie from near and far.
