GMC spend night on mountain

A small group of students from Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vt. spent an unplanned night in the woods just outside of Granville in Pawlet, Vt. Nov. 10 after becoming separated from a class outing. The three students were reported missing about 3 p.m.

An afternoon search Nov. 10 failed to locate the students.

The students were found just after 7 a.m. the following day, Nov. 11 when they walked out of the woods and met rescuers.

Vermont State Police and West Pawlet Fire Department personnel responded to search for the three students identified as Chris Jenkins, Courtney Heverly and Jack Hepburn. The three were part of a larger group hiking with a GMC professor and became separated from the group which had hiked Haystack Mountain from the Waite Hill Road entrance. The students told police they had used notebook paper to start a fire to keep warm and then hiked out of the wood after first light. The three were reported to be in good condition when found.
