How prepared was he? What're his survival skills like? Is there no evidence of plans for an extended hike/stay? I don't like to say this, but in that area, if someone is lost, they need to be prepared and have the right skills, to survive such a long period as that. The weather can be quite harsh, the terrain is difficult, the woods incredibly dense, various animals that could pose some dangers (bears, coyotes, etc.)...I've spent more than a few nights in the Big Branch Wilderness and the nearby Peru Peak Wilderness and the surrounding area, some planned, some unplanned when things came up while out there...in fact I was out that way the other day scouting some places to trap fisher cats...didn't see anything unusual FWIW around Griffith lake...

Apparently he hasn't been heard from since August.

VERMONT STATE POLICE (http://www.dps.state.vt.us/vtsp/missing/salikhov_konstantin.html - broken link)

Anderson Lomarca: Missing: Konstantin Salikhov from Providence,Rhode Island

From the second link:

Currently I have been working on the case of a missing Russian College graduate of Brown's University "Konstantin Salikhov" who disappeared after leaving his Providence, R.I. apartment in August and hasn't been seen or heard from since!

Mr.Salikhov is 31 years old, 6ft. tall 190 lbs with medium brown hair and brown eyes, he's an avid Runner and loves backpacking/hiking/and camping. His last known whereabouts were in San Francisco where he returned a Rental Car to a Car Rental Agency on August the 20th and hasn't been seen or heard from since!

San Francisco Police Spokesman Sgt. Mike Andreychak says they investigated this missing person's report at the request of the Providence , R.I. police!

Police in both San Francisco and Rhode Island have confirmed that there has been no activity on Mr. Salikhov's Bank Account or Cell Phone since August 20th which is the last time he called his parents and spoke to them briefly telling them that he was back from a camping trip and was returning the rental car.

Mr.Salikhov's own personal vehicle is also missing. It is described as a light colored (no definite color was provided to us) 2003 Hyundai Elantra with the Rhode Island license plate # 712-678.

Because Mr. Salikhov is 31 years old and unmarried the San Francisco police assume that he is Gay and just hooked up with someone and will return home on his own sooner or later! Only time will tell.

However Mr. Salikhov was very close to his family back in Russia and has never gone this long a period of time without talking with his beloved parents, who are sick with worry over his disappearance!

Konstantin Salikhov has been described as a loner and a minimalist.

No any information how well K.Salikhov was prepared for hiking around town of Peru, VT. Can somebody from local Residents: hikers and other volunteers to organize his physical search on the Appalachian Trial and the Long Trail, leave flyers about his disappearance in entrance? Konstantin's parents suppose to arrive in the USA 11/15/2010 from RU and they are looking for help and support.
Thank you.

There will be lots of people in the woods over the next few weeks due to hunting season.

Yeah, if he's out there, either alive (hopefully), or not, chances are a hunter will see him. I'll likely be running an extensive trapline up there sometime in December, and will possibly do some hunting up there this month...lots of other people hunt up there too...
