Missing Lewis Co. camper safely located at hospital

LYONSDALE — A Pennsylvania man was safely located Saturday after state forest rangers, state police and Lewis County sheriff’s deputies responded to a weekend report of a missing camper, last seen in the Fowlersville area.

The camper, a 39-year-old man from Pittsburgh, Pa., missed a planned April 17 meeting with a relative, who hadn’t heard from him since April 13, according to a state Department of Environmental Conservation news release.

Responders searched the area, used a drone and learned the man had sustained an arm injury on April 14, then walked to a nearby road and was taken to a hospital by a passing motorist.
