Athens man found dead in Wayne National Forest
(2007-12-27)
(WOUB) - Sheriff Larry Mincks says 76-year-old Jack Rosser from Athens was found dead in the Wayne National Forest last night.

Sheriff Mincks says it looks like Rosser fell over a cliff and hit his head on a rock.

Rosser had been reported missing earlier in the evening.

About 40 sheriff's deputies, Federal Hocking volunteer firefighters, and volunteers searched for him using a bloodhound and a helicopter camera that can detect people through heat.
