Tense Moments Sunday On Tamarack Trail Near Mauthe Lake

A father and at least 3 kids were reunited with family following some tense moments Sunday night near Mauthe Lake.

The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department was notified Sunday (3/20/2022) shortly before 8:25 p.m. by a female caller who was concerned about the health of her husband who was out hiking the Tamarack Trail with at least 3 children.

The female said her husband had kidney surgery last month, and that she was concerned he may be suffering a health issue while hiking.

Deputies began searching the trail, and had just finished searching the north half of the trail when notification came in that the father and the children had been located on Cty. Road G, just north of the ranger station.

Sheriff’s log reports did not indicate any injuries, and the 44-year old male and the children were reunited with family shortly after being located.
