On November 16th, 2015 seven men set out to hunt Lily Pond Road at the Lake George Wilderness Area in Upstate New York . The men were all experienced hunters, had communication devices, were not far from their camp, and were on a commonly used road. After hunting for a couple of hours the group decided to return to their cars. Tom Messick, who was sitting in one spot about 40 yards from the main road, was never seen or heard from again. The following day, an extensive search and rescue operation was launched in the immediate area of his disappearance. At the peak of the search, over 50 organizations and upwards of 300 searchers were trying to find Tom. The search failed to find Tom or any evidence he had even been in the woods that day. How could an experienced hunter have gone missing in such a short period of time? Why did two FBI agents show up? Join us this week as we piece together the bizarre details behind the disappearance of Tom and search efforts that followed.
