Lake Superior Project: The Missing Hiker

No one heads out into the woods expecting to get lost - and the remote and heavily forested landscape along the North Shore poses unique challenges for search and rescue teams. In the fall of 2001, medical student Jason Rasmussen became lost while hiking the Powwow Trail in Lake County. Shortly after losing the main trail, Jason became separated from his tent and gear, finding himself without shelter and facing deteriorating conditions with deep snow, high winds and very cold temperatures.

Producer Martha Marnocha has created a 2-part feature on one of the longest and most compelling search and rescue stories in northeast Minnesota called “The Missing Hiker.”
