Tri-County Activated for Search in Fundy National Park

On August 26th, Tri-County Ground Search and Rescue responded to a request from RCMP District #11 to assist in locating two missing teenage hikers in the Moosehorn Trail section of the park. The two hikers had attempted to travel from Moosehorn Trail to Third Vault Trail along the Upper Salmon River. When the going proved too difficult, they decided to cut across country back to the Moosehorn Trail and became disoriented.

After using their cell phone at approximately 18:00 to call police, the RCMP activated Tri-County and advised Fundy National Park personnel. The two hikers were found by Park personnel at 21:44, wet and tired but in good condition.

As pointed out by the RCMP in their press release, this serves as a reminder for those hiking to always be well prepared when going into the woods.
