Lost Hiker Found After Major Interagency Search

Catoctin Mountain Park

National Park News

Missing hiker Barbara Freund, 81 of Carroll Valley, Pennsylvania, was found by a Mid-Atlantic Search and Rescue air scent dog team at approximately midnight on August 6th in Owens Creek near Route 550 east of Thurmont, Maryland. Despite being lost for 34 hours and suffering minor mobility impairments, Freund was conscious and responsive at the time she was located about a quarter mile from her last known location.  She was transported to Frederick Memorial Hospital, where she is in stable condition. Over 100 searchers from Catoctin Mountain Park and six other national parks, five volunteer SAR organizations, and teams from Maryland State Police, Maryland Natural Resources Police and Maryland State Park Service were committed during the 34-hour-long search for Freund. Search efforts were hampered by extremely steep and rocky terrain with dense vegetation.
