DEC Forest Rangers and New York State Police are coordinating the search for a missing hunter.
Just before 10:00 p.m. on Saturday November 19, 2016 NYS DEC Forest Rangers received a call from State Police for assistance in finding a Vermont hunter who had failed to return to his hunting camp in Clinton County.
Now some 110 law enforcement officials and volunteers are searching the woods near Ellenburg, NY for Munn Boardman, a 58-year Vermont resident.
Forest Rangers, a State Police K-9 unit, and the DEC searched until almost 4:00 a.m. without finding the man. Search teams resumed on Sunday morning the 20th with 15 NYSP, five NYSP K-9 units, nine Forest Rangers, members of Champlain Valley Search and Rescue, and some 51 volunteer fire department members from eight different departments in Franklin and Clinton Counties.
Monday morning the 21st, another twelve Forest Rangers, State Police and more volunteers resumed the search in difficult winter conditions with wind chills in the single digits and temperatures falling.
Boardman’s family and friends have also gladly joined in on the search. Multiple Fire Departments, emergency teams, Red Cross and other services are on the job and helping to coordinate the rescue.
Anyone with information on Boardman’s location please contact NYSP in the Plattsburgh district at (518) 563-3761.
