A 14 years old boy left the Toll Road at Stowe Mountain Resort and became lost alone in Ranch Valley. He called his mother, who alerted Mt Mansfield Ski Patrol. Patrol then alerted Stowe Mountain Rescue, who contacted his cell phone and instructed him to call 911 to obtain the phones coordinates. He was located by 911 in the Ranch Valley north of the Bruce Trail, South of John's Road and west of Bear Run.

Stowe Mountain Rescue 
instructed the boy to continue down the drainage a short distance until he intersected the Bear Run Trail.  A Stowe Mountain Resort employee who was grooming cross country trails in the area was contacted and requested to pick up the boy.  He was located and returned to the touring center uninjured.
