  • Guardians assisted in the search for a lost Michigan hunter yesterday. A helicopter deployed from Air Station Traverse City quickly located the hunter Monday morning after he was reported missing from camp overnight. Hunters are reminded to keep rapidly changing weather conditions and their own physical limitations in mind during hunting season.
