Looking for Jacob
“My son Jacob and his girlfriend Wesley went hiking on the Appalachian Trail about 2 months ago. They started in Georgia and may be in Virginia now. He turned off his cell phone and there is no way to contact him. His grandfather is in the hospital dying, and he needs to know. If you see him on the trail please inform him.
He is white, 6 foot, brown hair cut short, Wesley is white, 5-4, blond hair.”
“Wow, sorry to hear and hope you have some luck locating them. There's a lot of AT hikers on here that will have some good ideas that may help. Best wishes!”
“If you haven't already, try posting at whiteblaze.net. It is an Appalachian Trail specific forum.
If you know Jacob's trail name, be sure to use that as he is more likely to be recognized that way.
“Ye, they'd be in VA by now. Some bad news that.....”
“He has to go into town every few days to re-supply. Hopefully he will check his messages the next time he does.”
“Jolagge, I talked to a gentleman I know that has a place on the AT that hikers spend the at. So he sees lots of them and when I told him about tour situation, he thought he may know where they are and is going to pursue it. He wanted me to pass the word along to you. Most of the hikers use a trail name so that would really help to know it.”
