Successful Search for Missing Father and Son

Catoctin Mountain Park

National Park News

A 34-year-old man and his four-year-old son were reported missing just after 10:00 p.m. on May 16th. The twosome had begun hunting for mushrooms in the park around 5:00 p.m. When their vehicle was found along Managhan Road within the park, a coordinated search was begun with assistance from the Frederick County deputies, Maryland DNR police, and a Maryland State Police helicopter and search dog units. A dog team picked up their scent at a stream near the vehicle and followed the track to the father and son, who were round at 2:50 a.m. They had stopped for the night and started a small fire for warmth. Nighttime temperatures were in the mid-40s.  A local community ambulance crew checked father and son and found them to be in good condition.
