Man Missing in Shenandoah National Park for 10 days

A hiker went missing during a hike in Shenandoah National Park ten days ago and searchers still have not found him.    He’s reported to have excellent survival skills and weather this time of year is mild in that area, but given the number of roads I think a healthy person would almost certainly have found their way out by now.

    Dead.
    Body found a mile from his ginseng digging tool and cigarettes that were found less than a mile from his ATV.
    No cause of death immediately apparent but no foul play suspected.
    No explanation as to why a 12 day search including the use of two canines was unable to find someone who was within two miles of his Last Known Position.

    In Lieu of flowers the family has asked that donations be made to the search and rescue fund.
    From a previous press release:
    Approximately 46 employees and trained volunteers, including ground searchers and one dog team, are currently involved in the search, which is a joint operation between Shenandoah National Park and the Albemarle County Sheriff’s Office. These agencies are currently being assisted by the Albemarle County Police Department, a Virginia State Police dog team, Dogs East, Blue and Gray Search and Rescue Dogs, K-9 Alert, the Greene County Sheriff’s Office, Appalachian Search and Rescue, Rockingham Augusta Search and Rescue, DELMARVA Search and Rescue, the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, and Green Mountain National Forest. National Park Service employees from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Harpers Ferry, Independence, Blue Ridge, Cape Cod, Hopewell Furnace, Acadia, and Gateway have joined the search.
