November 30, 1954

A search party was organized to search for a missing hunter on Tuesday November 30, 1954. Richard Matter, 25 years old from Lykens, was reported missing at 4 o'clock p.m. A search party of 50 men consisting of State Police, Lykens Firemen, and field workers from the Department of Forestry and Waters combed the Bear Pool Swamp area of Berry Mountain south of Lykens from sundown until 11:30 p.m. Matter became lost while tracking a deer. He was found after six hours, walking on a dirt road many miles from his automobile. He suffered from exhaustion and said he had an "unlucky day."
