    PA - Jerry Piorkowski, 59, Port Richmond, Feb 2008

    13 Feb 08

    Piorkowski, 59, was one of three goose hunters who went missing over the weekend. New Jersey State Police found the body of one of his friends - Jan Toryfter, 45, of Princeton - on a marshy patch of Cumberland County land.

    The three friends left on Saturday and were reported missing by their families on Sunday.

    They apparently did not plan on staying out overnight, authorities said.

    An autopsy revealed Toryfter died of exposure, said Sgt. Steve Jones, spokesman for the state police. Foul play is not suspected, and it is unclear what went wrong for the men, who were experienced outdoorsmen, police said.

    Authorities spent another day yesterday searching the area for Piorkowski and the third man in the hunting party, Jozef Karamuz, 69, a Huntingdon Valley physician. Officials said the search had become more of a recovery mission than a rescue effort.

    The search will continue today for the last of the three hunters who went missing over a week ago in the area of Husted Landing Marina.

    Searchers have found the bodies of two of the hunters, Jan Toryfter, 45, of Princeton, and Zdzislaw "Jerry" Piorkowski, 59, of Philadelphia, since they began looking for the men on Feb. 10.

    This case seems so bizarre to me. Surely one of these men had a cell phone. I also didn't read that they were caught in bad weather. I just don't understand how they could all 3 die of exposure. Does anyone know if this is a very remote area?
