Cody Roman Dial, the 27-year-old son of legendary Alaskan wilderness adventurer Roman Dial, has been missing for several weeks in Costa Rica. Roman is down there now to help with the search, while Peggy, Roman’s wife and Cody’s mother, helps to coordinate things from Anchorage. Details about the progress of the search are limited, as you might expect given the remote location and the limited resources available for the search.
Roman has had a huge influence on me, and I’ve been thinking often of his family since I heard the news several weeks ago. From Colorado, the most I can reasonably do is contribute towards the search fund that has been set up, and hope this story ends well or at least with closure.
If you’d also like to contribute to the search, you can send a check to Margaret Dial at Alaska USA Federal Credit Union, PO Box 196613, Anchorage, AK, 99519. All checks must include the memo “Cody Roman Dial Donation Account.”
