Joseph Campbell, 58, of Dunbar, had become the subject of an intensive search when he failed to rejoin his hunting party on the afternoon of Friday, December 9. Campbell who had spent two nights in the woods in subfreezing temperatures, was found by a search party at noon on Sunday, December 11. He was taken to a doctor in Harmon and then brought to Thomas Memorial Hospital in South Charleston. "Temperatures never climbed above zero and at night the wind was blowing as much as 35 m.p.h.," says Sergeant W.M. Armstrong of the Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division. "There was about five inches of snow on the ground with drifts as deep as six feet. Considering what he had been though, Campbell was in remarkable condition when we found him." Campbell told authorities that he had killed a deer during a blizzard on FHdey but that his strength gave out as he was tryin8 to drag the deer out. Having hunted in the Dolly Sods area for about 30 years, the Dunbar man was prepared for such an emergency in that he was carrying matches and compass. Bampbell built a fire on Friday night but still did not hne the strength needed to walk on Saturday. After r- ,"-:,:.:::--I BUILDINGS. GARAGES, WOOD OR : , METAL I * ....
