It is reported that a 20 year old man when for a hike on Mt Rose in the Town of Shandaken on Saturday, October 30, 2010. Mt Rose is privately owned. He was staying at a house near the mountain. Search-and-Rescue ("SAR") teams were called in to help located the man. To this date, he has not been found. Due to the cold weather, the out look for a happy ending is diminishing. The HQ for SAR is at the Shandaken Fire House. If you know anything helpful, you should contact them at 688-7009. The fire house is located at Rt 28 and Rt 42.

Doesn't sound too hopeful. 5 days in the mountains without gear is very tough. Unless he has survival training and knowledge his changes are not good. If I remember correctly, isn't Mt Rose owned by part of the hunting club on Rt 214?
