Rangers Join Successful Search For Seven Missing Teenagers

Cape Lookout National Seashore

National Park News

The park received a call from the Coast Guard yesterday morning asking for assistance in a search for seven missing teenagers. The teens had boated to the park on Monday to camp overnight, but failed to return as scheduled on Tuesday morning. Protection ranger Shad Dusseau and interpretive ranger Ehren Gross headed out in a 25-foot boat in 30 to 40 knot winds and three to five foot seas to look for the party, but failed to find them in a search of the western third of the park. Meanwhile, chief ranger Barry Munyan, while on another assignment, spotted a boat matching the description of the missing vessel anchored near the lighthouse complex. Members of the missing party were contacted by volunteer lighthouse keeper Mary Crocker, who confirmed that all seven were in good condition and waiting for storm conditions to abate.
