Town of Shandaken in Ulster County

Wilderness Rescue: On April 7 at 12:52 a.m., the Ulster County Sheriff's Office contacted DEC's Central Dispatch requesting assistance with a search for a 26-year-old missing woman from the town of Shandaken. The woman's mother contacted the Shandaken Police Department at 10 p.m., and police responded along with a New York State Police (NYSP) canine unit. Forest Ranger Kevin Slade arrived at the woman's residence and interviewed her mother. Rangers Slade and Anastasia Allwine then hiked behind the residence to conduct a search in the Slide Mountain Wilderness Area. Forest Rangers Philip Parlier, Cameron Sweeney, Griggsby Cowart, Jeffrey Breigle, Stephen Ellis, and Katherine Fox also responded and began searching neighborhood homes, outbuildings, and public and private lands. At 9:50 a.m., Ranger Ellis located the missing woman approximately two miles from her home on state land. Ranger Ellis drove her back to her residence where she was evaluated by Shandaken Rescue. All Rangers were cleared of the scene at 10:45 a.m.
