Major Search Underway For Camper Lost on Hike


A major search has been launched in Vermont for a missing Yeshiva Boy.

Sources tell YWN that a 15-year-old boy went missing while hiking with a camp on a trail in Killington, Vermont. He was last seen at around 9:00PM on Wednesday night.

A massive deployment from Chaveirim of Rockland just took place, with more than 20 volunteers leaving Monsey just moments ago. They are heavily equipped with all types of search and rescue equipment including  state of the art command center, with high-end radio communications.

Chaveirim of Rockland trains multiple times every month for searches. They train in the mountains of Harriman State Park, Bear Mountain area, and other mountainous locations near Rockland County.

Killington is a town in the Green Mountains of central Vermont, around 4 hours from Monsey, NY. It’s known for the Killington and Pico Mountain downhill ski resorts. The area’s many hiking paths include the Thundering Falls Trail, which leads to a tumbling cascade. The long-distance Appalachian and Long trails both cut through the town. West of Killington, old-growth hardwood trees, including sugar maples and beeches, fill Gifford Woods State Park.
