Missing American Hiker on GR 20 - NEED YOUR HELP!!!


Recommended Posts

We are searching for an American hiker who set out to hike the GR 20 alone on July 19th and hasn't been seen or heard from since.

If you were hiking the GR 20 around that time, if you are hiking there now, or if you plan to start soon, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please do what you can to help us find him.

George Hecht was last seen at the first checkpoint at Calenzana on July 19 -- he was supposed to call at the start of his hike, but did not, and has not been heard from since. George is 70 years old, approximately 5’7” (1.7 meters) and 145 lbs (66 kilograms). He is 70 years old and in great physical health, with brown eyes and thinning brown hair.

More information is at our Facebook page here: http://bit.ly/georgehecht

If you are on the trail, you can help us by periodically using a special whistle that George's family always uses when someone is lost. If he hears it, he will know that his family is looking for him and help is on the way. You can listen to an audio recording of the whistle here: https://soundcloud.com/steve11217/george-hecht-help-whistlewav

THANK YOU for your help!!!

How far is George hiking, did he plan to hike the entire trail? Sorry, but I'd rather not click on your "whistle link". I hope that you find him.
