Report from the DEC:

Lost Hiker: On Sunday, July 17, 2016, at 5:47 p.m., DEC central dispatch received a call requesting assistance for a lost 46-year-old male hiker in the Hunter Mt. area who hiked about eight miles on the blue trail and became disoriented and lost. The hiker had GPS on his cell phone and had a strong signal. He was instructed to turn on the GPS capability and not to move from his location. A DEC Ranger then made contact with the hiker and determined he was on the Mink Hollow trail. The Ranger told the subject which direction to hike and the Ranger met the subject about one mile in on the trail and the two hiked out and reached the trailhead at about 7:30 p.m.
