Mark Twain National Forest asks for help identifying theft suspects

BUNKER, Mo. (KBSI) – Mark Twain National Forest asks for the public’s help identifying individuals captured on photo and video stealing from the Marcoot Lookout Tower near Bunker last year.

The people are suspected of removing the Osborne Fire Finder from the lookout tower. Fire finders assist lookouts in pinpointing the exact location of smoke cross referenced with a map. They are historical items and are very difficult to replace, according to the Mark Twain National Forest.

Members of the public are asked to look at the photos and watch the videos posted in the comments below in the post to see if the individuals or vehicle look familiar.

If you have any information that can help catch these thieves, call the Mark Twain National Forest’s Patrol Captain Casey Hutsell at 573-341-7463.
