Pardon my post since it's not exactly A.T. related. I'm just passing along info. about a search going on for a missing hiker who belongs to a Raleigh, NC, hiking group that I'm involved with.
As of Midnight, Wednesday, November 4:
Please continue to spread the word that if anyone comes across a Green Nissan Pickup truck with NC license plate, Appalachian Trail specialty plate "TENT" to immediately contact law enforcement.
There is some evidence that the search zone should be in the Cashiers to Brevard area along US 276, NC 281, and US 64
