Search con­tin­ues for miss­ing hunter

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - STATE NEWS -

Res­cue crews con­tinue the search for a Ver­mont hunter who hasn’t been seen since he left his hunt­ing camp last week­end in north­east­ern New York.

The Platts­burgh Press-Repub­li­can re­ports there’s been no sign of 58-year-old Munn Board­man. State po­lice say the search was di­aled back some­what on Thanks­giv­ing, but it was back to full strength on Fri­day, with some 200 searchers on the ground con­duct­ing grid searches of about 1,000 acres of mostly wooded prop­erty.

Res­cue teams searched near Board­man’s camp in the Town of El­len­burg on Thanks­giv­ing Day. Troop­ers say the ef­fort is con­tin­u­ing through­out the week­end.

Ef­forts have been ham­pered by win­try weather. Parts of the re­gion re­ceived up to 16 inches of snow.

El­len­burg is on the Adiron­dack Park’s north­ern bound­ary, just south of the Cana­dian bor­der.
