MUNISING, Mich. (WLUC) - Authorities are still searching Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore for a missing woman. 55-year-old Kara Moore was reported missing on Friday in the Beaver Basin Wilderness Area.
Several agencies have been actively searching for her both on land and by air, and a canine unit arrived on Monday.
"We've been searching the ground, the air," said Keweenaw Bay Tribal Police Officer Jake Misegan. "What we've been doing is looking for any track that she might have left. It's been a little difficult due to the amount of volunteers and the amount of people recreating in the park."
Park officials said she was hiking with about ten family members, but fell behind on the way back. However, she is familiar with the area.
“Her family makes an annual trek from the Milwaukee area up to the U.P.,” said Susan Reece with Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. “They stay in a cabin in the Manistique area and one of their favorite places to hike is the Beaver Creek Coves area. They had been there on Tuesday and they came back again on Friday to hike.”
Moore is 5’4”, white, with long gray hair and metal-rimmed glasses. She was wearing black pants, tennis shoes, a purple sweatshirt, turquoise jacket and has a multi-colored backpack.
Park officials said Moore suffered a head injury in the past and has some short-term memory problems.
If anyone has information or see Moore, please remain with her and call 911.
