DATELINE: North Bend, WA 03JAN2013
At approximately 13:56 experienced wing suit jumper Kurt Ruppert Jr. age 29 of Lake City, FL, jumped from a helicopter, intending to glide over Mt.Si and land at a location in North Bend, but was never seen again…
Ruppert was an accomplished jumper, logging over 1,000 jumps in less than a decade.
Neither the pilot nor observers on the ground actually saw Ruppert exit the helicopter nor his path thereafter.
An exhaustive search over four days was conducted by well over one hundred personnel, yet turned up no trace.
