[UPDATE 9:10 p.m. Rescued!] Missing Hiker Located….on Far Side of Deep River, Rescue Efforts Underway
A lost hiker was sought this afternoon in the Bull Creek/Rockefeller Forest area. The woman’s cell phone was dying and dark was coming on when she was located about 4:45 p.m. “on far side of deep river'” from “Garden Grove,” according to scanner traffic.
Currently, Search and Rescue as well as a motorized boat is being requested in order to rescue the woman.
We are attempting to determine the location of the woman. We believe the “Garden Grove” mentioned is actually Garden Club Grove which south of Burlington. We plotted the route by car to give our readers some idea of how far the woman would have had to walk to get to that point if “Garden Grove” and Garden Club Grove are the same place.
We’ll be following the story and updating as information comes in.
UPDATE 9:10 p.m.: According to the scanner, the missing woman was rescued about 8:22 p.m.
