> How a trained SAR crew can mistake that site, with a clear road leading to it, mistake for a fresh crash site is beyond me. I am beginning to question that part of the story.

Former SAR pilot here - it can definitely happen.

When there's a crash and you're scrambled and reports and questions are coming in over the radio and your co-pilot is trying to DF on the ejection seat tone and the guys in back are calling out sightings - the adrenaline gets pumping, and mistakes get made.

It's just the nature of SAR, particularly within units that only get called out to actual rescues infrequently.
