Early Sunday evening, Carver Police requested State Police Air Wing to assist them with searching for a missing hiker who was lost in the wooded area near the Plymouth airport. The Air Wing responded and located the man, who had started a small fire, in an attempt to stay warm. Troopers Mark Spencer and Eric Fairchild, the crew of Air 2, guided first responders on the ground to the man. He was successfully guided out of the woods. A video, made with the helicopter’s Forward Looking InfraRed (FLIR) camera, can be seen here: http://youtu.be/MVEGhtNTRMw . In this video you will see the lost hiker, the fire he lit for warmth, as well as the first responders on the ground, being guided in by the State Police Air Wing.
