UPDATE: Guntersville State Park Overdue Hiker Located


GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Guntersville State Park rangers say the Huntsville man who did not return from a hike Thursday has been located.

Rangers say Sachin Kapoor, 25, walked into the main campground on his own at around 5:30 Friday evening.  As we were first to report rangers never considered him ‘missing,’ because he is an experienced hiker, but they did set up a search to find him Thursday.

Kapoor went for a hike Thursday, but when he didn’t return after several hours, his parents notified the park.

Rangers and local volunteer firefighters looked for Kapoor for the last 24 hours.

There was no explanation given for why the hiker was overdue.
