TUPPER LAKE – A two-day search for a local hunter, which brought together hundreds of volunteers, rangers and members of the Adirondack Mountain Rescue, ended like no one wanted. St. Lawrence County Coroner June Wood said Thursday afternoon that hunter Ray Martin was found dead.

Martin, 65, was a Chartered Accountant in Tupper Lake and a distinguished member of the community.

He was reported late on a hunting trip around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, the State Department of Environmental Conservation said in an email.

In the days that followed, a massive search was organized in the Bridge Brook Pond area. About ten DEC rangers, several Environmental Police officers, and New York State Police soldiers brought search dogs and helicopters and searched around the clock. .

Hundreds of volunteers and members of Adirondack Mountain Rescue have turned up to the Tupper Lake boat launch and emergency services to assist. Others brought food and supplies to the researchers.

Professionals searched all night Wednesday.

The Martin family ask people to respect their privacy.
