Time for searching questions

The search for Michael Erceg has raised a number of comments and requests for review of RCCNZ operation. This is not the first time, and is unlikely to be the last. A big review and reorganisation of the RCC happened relatively recently after a number of Marine rescues that did not go well (remember Timeout). One also has to ask "why this time" when a very similar search for a helicopter lost in dense bush in Fiordland was called off after a few days, and has not been found yet...

Certainly in this case the family and associates of Michael Erceg had the resources to bring about a search well beyond the normal budgets of RCCNZ and the Police, however as has been stated there is always opportunities to review and update.
