People get lost in the ADKs and Catskills all the time. Most of the time people never hear about it. Keeps the rangers and SAR busy.

Here is another very sad story that happen south of the Catskills: http://www.lohud.com/article/2010102090334 . A woman fell off a 300' ledge along with her dog. Both are dead.
