Looking for worms?

I should have become an investigative reporter because I always have so many questions I’d like to know the answers to. For instance, how lost can a person get looking for worms? Or how often is the USFS going to spend funds searching for people who go “missing” from a campsite? I don’t know how long this person was missing or any of the details but it sure would be nice to know…

According to his group, Teeter said he was going to look for worms to use as fishing bait.

The U.S. Forest Service was able to successfully locate Teeter using an airplane.

Authorities said he was uninjured.
