New York reader stories: Missing in the wilderness for 1,291 days

Roy Luce, Mike McCarthy and Tim Pehl (l-r), all of Saratoga County, N.Y. enjoy a moment at their Pine Lake campsite in the central Adirondacks in May 1996. Their spring fishing trip would soon turn somber when they discovered the body of a New York City hunter missing since 1992. (Photos provided)

Pine Lake is a remote pristine Adirondack lake, which is located northeast of Indian Lake, in Hamilton County, N.Y. The lake is known for good fishing and the surrounding forest has superb hunting for big white-tailed bucks and bears.
The region is unquestionably beautiful, but deceptively dangerous as well. With a combination of difficult terrain and rapidly changing weather, this environment is potentially hazardous. Injuries are not uncommon, and the sheer size of this wilderness area results in many people becoming lost.
