Family Lost Geocaching


Update: We’ve updated this story with new first-hand information. Please see the updated story, Family NOT lost geocaching.

Recently a family got lost while Geocaching near Myakka City, Florida. The family realized they could not find their way out of the woods and called 911 to ask for assistance. A Sheriff Department helicopter later located them and a country truck was able to drive in and rescue the seven member family.

This is a good lesson for everyone. GPS is a tool, not a fail-proof wonder gadget. These people are not the first… nor will they be the last people to become lost even though they have a GPS device.

I’m sorry the Mileys family had a bad experience Geocaching. If by chance they happen to come across this article in the next few weeks…. I’m not too far from you and would gladly offer a free GPS lesson to you and we’ll go find that cache! Just contact us.

The family did contact me…. to tell me the story that ran in the local newspaper was incorrect. […]
