Hey everyone, I just received a call from Bart. There is a hiker missing near Black Balsam which is the next exit after Grave yard fields if you are coming from Asheville. The terrain is rugged and steep. We are going to head out asap from the Buncombe county rescue squad. We will have at least one more team heading out after lunch. Bill will be updating the message board ( http://rescue.meetup.... ) as more info becomes available. T
Directions to Buncombe County Rescue Squad Headquarters:
Take Patton Ave over the Bridge
Make your next Right ON to Hazel Mill Rd.
Take an IMMEDIATE RIGHT on Hansel Rd.
Follow until it intersects with Clayton Rd.
You should be able to see it. Our next group is leaving at 1pm.
here is a link for black balsam:
Please be prepared for a rough hike. Lots of water
Please call me and I will give you the location we are at currently. We left this morning but we are attempting to assemble another group for this afternoon; and maybe this evening.
Call or email me for more info:
