Marquette Township Hiker Rescue

A young woman is thankful for technology tonight after she got lost in Marquette Township.

19–year–old Melissa York of downstate Harbor Springs called 911 shortly after 6 pm, telling dispatchers that she got lost while hiking near Wetmore Pond.

Using GPS coordinates from her phone, Marquette County Search and Rescue tracked York’s location.

They found her an hour later on an old railroad grade just east of the pond.

York did not need medical attention and she was escorted safely to her car.
