CATSKILL, N.Y. (NEWS10) – On Monday, a prayer vigil will be held for a local hiker lost on a Russian mountain.
Steven Beare is originally from the Catskill area.
He was hoping to climb the highest mountains on all seven continents.
Beare was supposed to have arrived at a checkpoint on June 16th, but he never made it.
Since then crews have been searching around the clock.
Monday at 7-30 p.m., there will be a prayer vigil for him at St. Patrick’s Church in Catskill.
