Gunther Frank is a well known member of the Bellingham music and arts scene and we have been fortunate to have him photograph some of our Friday night late shows at Boundary Bay Brewery. This last weekend, Gunther was in a sailboating accident and he (along with his friend Sean Mansfield) have not yet been found. (click here for the complete story as reported in the Bellingham Herald.) The U.S. Coast Guard had two boats and a helicopter searching for the men Friday morning, but it suspended the search effort pending further developments that afternoon. The Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office declared Frank and Mansfield missing and presumed drowned Friday, but friends are holding out hope. They have continued to search for Gunther Frank and Sean Mansfield and are doing everything they can to find their friends. For the most current search info, to find out how you can help and to connect with everyone else, please visit the blog set up by their friends. Boundary Bay Brewery is deeply saddened by the news of this accident and is eager to help aide the search for Gunther and Sean. For any parties involved with the search, please contact the brewery at 360-647-5593 to tell us what you need and how we can help you. Please ask to speak to Casey, Janet, Mark and/or Amy.
