  • Steven Thomas New Information

    I found a machete the last week of June 1976 between the old Little Marcy herd trail and the old Hopkins lean-to in the thick bush and I only found out decades later that Steve Thomas went missing right near that location. Could it have been his I don't know but given where it was, only his hiking party or the rescuers are the likely ones who lost the machete. The area was never searched as near as much as Mt. Marcy with dogs, helicopters, DEC, Steve's brother, and ADKers. I'm hoping to go back there in late May 2022 to search that area using leave no trace if the Canadian border opens. The Lake Placid News, Essex county has archived articles regarding the searches in 1976 on NYS historical archive newspapers on the internet.
