A Contagious Type of Friendship that Brought Strangers Together

Loveland, Colorado, July 2022— On July 5, 2018, Brian Perri was reported missing on Mount Meeker, one of the most dangerous mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park, after a selfie revealed his last known location as the summit. Inspired by her son’s role in the search that was covered by news media far and wide, Loveland resident K.V. Fischer penned the recently released Search Beyond Lies, Book One in the Search & Recovery International Series. Though a work of fiction, the book’s inspiration lies in the rare type of friendship her son, J.C. Fischer, and Kimo McEwen had with Brian, where they put their lives on hold and jeopardized their safety and well-being to search for him.
