NCL spoke with Nelson County Sheriff Elect, David Brooks around 4 PM this afternoon. “There was a lost hiker in the area near Humpback Rocks. Luckily, it wasn’t long before the hiker was located and everything is fine,” says David. Crews from Wintergreen, Nelson, and Augusta were involved in the search. Until late this afternoon the weather upon the mountains was terribly foggy, but has cleared now.
NCL has confirmed with Wintergreen Fire & Rescue that a search is underway near the BRP of Nelson & Augusta Counties. We have few details at this time, but do know members of Wintergreen, Nelson and Augusta squads are organizing in the area of Humpback Rocks Park at the visitor center to assist in the search.
More as we have it.
