A team of State Police troopers spent a very chilly night in the Roxbury woods last Wednesday, Feb. 8, called out to search for a hiker who was reported missing.

Adam Jackson, 38, of Roxbury was reported missing after not returning from a planned overnight camping trip with a friend.

Search crews arrived at the scene around midnight and searched throughout the night. It was not until 7 a.m. the next morning that they found Jackson alive and well walking on Ordway Road.

State Police would like to thank Vermont Fish and Wildlife, the Roxbury Fire Department, town office and highway department, and the Roxbury Country Store for their assistance.
