Police: Missing hunter located ‘alive and well’

Vermont State Police just posted on their Facebook site that a hunter missing in Danville has been found and is OK.

“Hunter located, alive and well,” is all the Facebook post said.

Police say Trevor Barrett, 33, of Barnet went hunting about 2 p.m. Thursday in Danville. He called his girlfriend at about 7 p.m. saying he was lost and his cell phone battery was nearly dead.

Wearing only a t-shirt and jeans, Barrett was not prepared to spend the night outside with temperatures expected to drop into the low 40s.

The Vermont State Police search and rescue team, Fish & Wildlife Department wardens, Caledonia County Sheriff’s Department deputies, State Police search dogs, local fire departments and family members all joined the search.

An initial search of the area whee Barrett was last seen came up empty and efforts to reach him on his cell phone failed.

Searchers combed the woods without success before Barrett was located this morning.
