  • Details of Disappearance
    Wesley Wamsganz, 22, hasn't been seen since November 20, 2010 when he left work at Lake Placid's Downtown Diner and started walking to the Adirondak Loj trailhead
    - without any food, water or outdoor gear, as far as searchers and his family know. Several hiking parties saw him in the High Peaks as darkness fell that evening;
    he was last seen at Marcy Dam, about 2 miles in. The family has been searching for Wesley and prayers are that he is alive and that perhaps he turned around and left
    the High Peaks Wilderness after going in. Search crews found an "article" that belongs to Wesley and his family and friends are very worried and ask the public to please
    help look for him.
