Hiker missing in Ramseys Draft Wilderness in VA

A hiker has now been missing over a week in the Ramseys Draft Wilderness Area in the George Washington National Forest near Harrisonburg,VA..Despite 75 Search and Rescue dog teams searching and aircraft being used in the remote area the hiker is still missing.The area has rugged steep mountains with cliffs..The hiker came back to his car with his gear and had to walk back in to find his cell phone and he has not been seen since..Anybody hunting remote areas need to carry gear for an unexpected overnight stay..The hiker was an experienced hiker and should have known better.SAR searchers and their dogs have come from all over the east coast..

I did a Google search on this and couldn't find anything. Maybe I am using the wrong search criteria.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

I have been to Ramseys Draft. It is somewhat remote, but remote is relative. It is remote for the East Coast, but I think that if one were to walk in a straight line, one would hit a road within hours, like much of the rest of the East Coast.

If thee hiker can't get out in a week my bet is that this is either a bogus story or the hiker is a corpse.
