Vermont State Police search for missing Appalachian Trail hiker
Vermont State Police are looking for a missing 67-year-old man who was last seen July 9 at the Inn at Long Trail in Killington.
Robert Kerker was hiking north along the Appalachian Trail. His daughter posted on Facebook that he never made it to his next hotel for a check-in on July 14. The family reported him missing to police on July 24.
Kerker is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. He has short white hair and a beard and goes by the trail name of Steady Eddie.
VSP is asking anyone who has a possible sighting or has seen something unusual along the trail — like a discarded hiking pole or article of clothing — to call the barracks in Rutland at 802-773-9101.
