I read an article the other day about a plane that went missing five years ago while flying along the North Shore of Lake Superior. Neither the pilot nor the plane have been found.
The article also talked about other missing people including, “Nathan Williams, a 21-year-old University of Minnesota Morris student, was reported missing in 2004 in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Charles Johnson, a 51-year-old Silver Bay resident, was reported missing in 2002 and was presumed to have drowned in Greenwood Lake, but a body was never recovered.”
I’ve never thought about reporting something unusual that I’ve found while out in the woods or the Boundary Waters. Lake County Sheriff suggests, “Report things they see in the woods — even objects they think are trash could be something from the plane.”
It’s a good thing to keep in mind if you come across something peculiar when you’re out in the woods. You just never know.
