Nor sure if this goes here, but...
Looking for Fred Grace hiking North? in PA

Hi All,
I am looking for my Nephew Fred Grace.
He is blond, 6'2" or so, mid-twenties, thin, big smile, easy going, and has a great sense of humor.
He left route 61 in PA heading North we think.
His departure day was Sunday, August 7th, 2011.
We have not heard from him.
He may be under-prepared, not have enough gear, clothes, food, $, etc.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if anyone has word of his whereabouts, lets me know.
We are not panicking yet, as he is a smart fellow and a strong hiker, but still...
I can be reached at 631-403-0203 or EricJEaton@gmail.com
Thank you all,
Peace,
Eric

Crosspost this to http://whiteblaze.net/ -- you may have more luck there. It's more of an AT specific set of forums. Also the AT-List: http://backcountry.net/mailman/listinfo/at-l

Thank you Pilate de Guerre. Great idea.

We found him.


As it turned out, he got a very severe case of poison ivy (face, etc.), and came off trail. His Mom just picked him up to take him to the hospital.
I guess he'll have a story or two to tell us when we finally get together.
Peace,
Eric
