Search: On Nov. 30 at approximately 1 p.m., a woman received a text message from her 60-year-old husband stating that he couldn't get his portable stove to work, and as a result was returning home from a camping trip on Slide Mountain. When the man didn't arrive home that evening, his wife contacted DEC Central Dispatch. The caller was uncertain of her husband's exact location. Forest Rangers were dispatched to various trailheads that lead to Slide Mountain. At approximately 8:55 a.m. on Dec. 1, a Ranger located the man's vehicle at the Denning Trailhead. Two Forest Rangers headed in toward Fisherman's Path along the East Branch of the Neversink River and located the man at 10:10 a.m. walking back to his vehicle. He was in good condition and did not require medical attention.
