LAKE PLACID State Department of Environmental Conservation forest rangers are conducting a search for two hikers who failed to return from a hiking trip up Algonquin Peak in the High Peaks Wilderness Area.

Maddie Popolizio and Blake Alois are from the Capital Region, according to their Facebook pages.

A family member created a social media post asking for volunteers Monday night, Dec. 12, that quickly went viral, being shared almost 3,000 times. The post says the pair was last heard from around noon on Sunday.

DEC spokesman David Winchell told the News Tuesday morning that the DEC was not requesting volunteer resources.
