Hunters asked to be more attentive when hunting this season for missing people

Search groups who look for missing people are asking hunters to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious they may find while in the woods.

“They get into places we sometimes can’t,” said Monica Caison, the founder of the CUE Center for Missing Persons in Wilmington, NC.

Caison said in the past 72 hours, her organization has received reports of six bodies/skeletons being found nationwide by hunters.

“They start getting found as soon as the hunters start hitting the woods,” she said, noting the holidays especially bring out lots of hunters.

Caison said not only should hunters be looking for bones (if you can’t rule out a bone being an animal, she says call police), but also looking for disturbed ground or dirt, signs of possibly a shallow grave.

Also, hunters should be aware of manmade items that look out of place like purses, clothing, shoes, wallets, keys, etc.

“If it’s way deep in the woods and it doesn’t fit, they should definitely call that in,” she said.

Just two months ago, a couple of hunters prepping land in rural Spartanburg County stumbled upon some skeletal remains which turned out to be missing 20-year-old Crystal Freeman.

“It happens all the time,” Caison said, “so be vigilant.”
