Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A somber tribute was held Saturday to honor fallen Las Vegas search and rescue officer David Vanbuskirk.
A half-page advertisement ran in Saturday's Review Journal, on what would have been Vanbuskirk's 37th birthday.
In the ad, the Vanbuskirk family thanked the Las Vegas community for its support.
Vanbuskirk fell to his death in July up on Mount Charleston. He was saving a lost hiker, when something went wrong on the way back up to the helicopter.
Investigators said they found no abnormalities with his harness.
They're now looking at the helicopter to see if something there failed.
