UPDATE: Search suspended for missing hunter in Nemadji State Forest

NOV. 8 UPDATE: After four days, the Pine County Sheriff’s Office has suspended its search for missing deer hunter David Lee Peltier.

Peltier had been reported missing on Sunday by members of his deer hunting party. The group was hunting in the Nemadji State Forest along the Gandy Dancer Trail near “Belden”, according to a press release.

While their ground search is suspended, authorities say they will continue to follow up on any new information they receive. Peltier rode to the area with friends and authorities say they are not searching for a vehicle.

Hunters who will be in the area these next few weeks are asked to keep watch and report anything found to the Sheriff’s Office.
