On Tuesday, December 4, Michigan State Police in Lakeview took a call from a Greenville family reporting that a 48-year-old hunter had called and reported that he was lost in a swamp and needed help.
They did not know where he was, but a former hunting partner provided a possible location in the Pigeon River Area in Cheboygan County. Troopers worked with AT&T and were able to get a location where the missing person’s cell phone was last used.
Troopers from Lakeview and the Gaylord Post then began to search for the hunter.
Troopers, along with 9 handlers, located the missing man’s vehicle in Nunda Township, Cheboygan County. The hunter was then located about one mile off the road. He was cold and dehydrated but otherwise ok.
The hunter was checked by EMS after being brought out of the woods by troopers.
