  • Scott Haworth - Search still on

    I don't know why the original thread on this gentleman from Chicopee, MA no longer exists, as it is still relevant and news-worthy. Extensive searching continues. For him to be missing for this long must be very disconcerting to his family. Lets hope for the best

    The state police (as lead agency in this case) along with DEC rangers may be continuing their extensive search, but I find it interesting that the NYSFEDSAR was not activated. Normally for wildlands searches the DEC (when it is the lead agency) will activate the extensive network of trained volunteer search teams within a day or so of the initial response when more manpower is needed. This has not been done, and at this late stage is unlikely now.

      For lack of better information I choose to hope that the authorities are privy to much more information than is being revealed to the public.

        FYI, LASAR (Lower Adirondack Search and Rescue) was called on a limited basis Thursday and for type 3 on Saturday.

          That is correct - and not just Thursday. A number of SAR teams under NYSFEDSAR have been involved, AFAIK

              Yes the public is still free to hike the trails in te Dix Wilderness, as far as I know. Nobody should touch any of the flagging or string put up by the DEC, regardless of whether there is writing on the flagging or not

                  I'd encourage folks to join a SAR team. The people who go out are specially trained in search techniques. The DEC does the training for the SAR groups. SARs are directed by the SDC Rangers, and not solely by by individuals or SAR teams

                    Hiked Colvin and Blake from Elk Lake yesterday. A ranger questioned us at the end of the day as we were taking our boots off at the trail head. We had nothing to tell him other then we were looking for signs and didn't see anything.

                      Always sad stories..... Something tells me that RS is probably right. Just from the article, I got a sense that there might be some stuff they've uncovered in the investigation to suggest a more "limited" search of the backcountry is appropriate. Not that they are doing their due-dilligence, but it hardly seems like an "all hands on deck" SAR.

                      Just a guess on my part. Either way, I hope it has a good resolution for all involved.

                        Was any trace ever found of the young man who disappeared while walking along Route 3 near Tupper Lake a couple of years ago?

                            Colin Gilles has not been found. I read somewhere recently DEC? is asking hunter in the region to keep an eye out for clues.

                              Yes, that's what I read, too. I'm going to post this case as a new thread here for the sake of compartmentalization.
