TRACK DOWN LOST
HIKERS.
THE WOLFE COUNTY
SEARCH AND RESCUE
TEAM IS USING A NEW
‘WEB APP’ THAT YOU
CAN ACCESS FROM
YOUR CELL PHONE…
TO HELP RESCUE
PEOPLE WHO CAN’T
FIND THEIR WAY OUT.
MIKE LINDEN SHOWS
US HOW THIS
TECHNOLOGY WAS
USED LAST NIGHT… TO
HELP SOME LOST
HIKERS.
IT’S A STORY THAT’S
NEW AT 5-30.
Just after 11:00
Thursday night, four
hikers from Cincinnati
called 9-1-1.
They said they were
lost in the Red River
Gorge without food,
water or flashlights.
“They intended for a
very short day hike and
they were just under
the false impression
that the trail that they
were on was going to
be a loop and it would
eventually bring them
back to where they
started their hike.”
The trail they were on
happens to be the
longest trail in the
state.
The Sheltowee Trace
Trail stretches from
Rowan County all the
way into Tennessee.
Some experienced
hikers say it isn’t a trail
for beginners.
“There’s a lot of up and
down. There are
definitely some
stretches where the
heart gets pounding.’
Search and Rescue
officials say they were
able to identify the trail
the hikers were on
based on what the
hikers were seeing on
the trees. In this
particular case, a turtle
marks the Sheltowee
Trace Trail.
After calling 9-1-1, the
hikers used a web app
on the Wolfe County
Search and Rescue
website to narrow their
location down to
coordinates within a 15
foot area on the trail.
“We were able to take
these coordinates, plot
them on a map which
placed them right on
the Sheltowee Trace;
right where we thought
they were.
Search and Rescue got
to the hikers just after
2:00 a.m.
Stevens says while the
web app is helpful it
requires good cellular
signal in order to work.
He says the web app
shouldn’t be the first
thought if you get lost
while hiking.
“Dial 9-1-1. Even if you
don’t think you have
cell phone service, try
dialing, because if any
carrier or provider has
cell phone service
you’re able to dial 9-
1-1.”
In Wolfe County, Mike
Linden, WKYT.
STEVENS SAYS
PEOPLE FROM THE
BUCKEYE STATE DON’T
HAVE THE BEST LUCK
IN THE RED RIVER
GORGE.
HE SAYS 70 PERCENT
OF ALL RESCUES EACH
YEAR ARE PEOPLE
FROM OHIO.
