An Appalachian Trail thru-hiker reported missing after last being seen on Massachusetts’ Mount Greylock on June 12 has been found alive and well in Vermont.
“We have made contact with Mark near Rutland, VT and all is ok. He has made contact with his family,” read the statement by police. “Thank you for all of the shares as it was a hiker on the trail that brought the situation to Mark’s attention.”
Police asked the public for help in locating the Appalachian Trail thru-hiker who has been missing since June 12. Langston was last known to have been at Mount Greylock State Reservation in Lanesborough, Massachusetts.
According to an article on MassLive.com, Langston missed all family check-ins since June 12 and his phone was off. Throughout his trip he posted on his Instagram account every few days, but the posts stopped on June 12.
Langston left Georgia in February, hiking the trail northward to Maine.
