VSP to revise search and rescue policy

Posted: Updated:

The Vermont State Police is tweaking its search and rescue policy after a hiker was found dead.

Nineteen year-old Levi Duclos died in January.  He went hiking alone in Ripton.  His family called police who found his body the next day.  

Following a meeting Sunday with first responders, State Police officials say they are working to formalize a policy that would establish search command centers and notify local authorities and Fish and Wildlife in the event of a search.
