Lost Hunter Found
The search for a lost hunter Saturday night into Sunday morning in a remote area of Southern Potter County ended successfully about 11-1/2 hours after it began. Two DCNR staff members came up on the hunter at about 5:15 a.m. Sunday while he was sitting in front of a fire he had built. Volunteers from about four departments and members of the Mountaineer Search and Rescue Team searched the area on foot and by rescue vehicles throughout the bitter cold night but the hunter, whose name was not released, apparently suffered no harm in the ordeal.

Over-heated Industrial Oven Calls Out Fire Department
No estimate of damage is available yet following an incident at Morgan AM & T Saturday night. According to Coudersport Volunteer Fire Department Second Assistant Chief Bryan Phelps, the local department was summoned at about 10:30 p.m. for an automatic alarm. When officers arrived on scene they found one of the ovens had overheated beyond a workable temperature. He said Roulette and Galeton volunteers were summoned, mostly as a precaution. Roulette firefighters supplied water from a pond located across Route 6 while Galeton stood by to cover the Coudersport service area and to be on hand in case the situation worsened. Phelps explained to BFB that an overheated oven is similar to a burn barrel and in most cases, the graphite burns until it extinguishes itself. The role of the fire department is to stand by to make sure there is no further damage and to make sure there are no injuries. He said the situation was left to plant maintenance personnel and the oven itself. According to Phelps, crews were packing up and some had left when the oven exploded damaging the side and back wall. There were no injuries and all units were finally back in service by 3:00 a.m. Sunday.

Genesee Resident Seriously Injured
Severe injuries were reported for a Genesee driver following a one-vehicle crash Friday afternoon on the Ridge Road in Genesee Township. Troopers said 22 year old Dustin Kio was headed north when his Jeep Grand Cherokee went out of control, traveled off the road, struck an embankment and a culvert while rolling over several times before coming to rest on its wheels. Kio was ejected from the vehicle and was first taken to Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville and then was flown by helicopter to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. Authorities say the investigation is continuing.

Galeton Resident Arrested For Access Device Fraud
A Galeton resident was released on $10,000 bail after being arraigned on charges of access device fraud, theft and disorderly conduct. State police say 29 year old Joshua Moyer took a Debit Card belonging to Rebecca Wetzel from her jacket pocket last Wednesday night or early Thursday morning while at her home in Galeton and then used it at the Galeton office of Northwest Savings Bank to withdraw $160.00 from her account.

State Police Looking For Assailant
Troopers are looking for an unknown man who assaulted Gary Cole of Wellsville last Thursday morning on the O’Donnell Road in Genesee Township. Authorities said Cole was working for Dominion Gas at that location when the suspect arrived in a dark Chevrolet Suburban, got out and punched Cole in the nose before taking off in a westerly direction in the SUV. He’s described as being 5’7”, weighs 200 pounds, was bald on the to of his head with gray hair on the sides and a thin gray beard. He was wearing blue work type (Dickies) pants and a sweatshirt. Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect is asked to call the local barracks at 274-8690.
