Not from the DEC's initial statement (above) but subsequent reports indicated he had a tarp, hammock, "bedroll" and "some food".

The enormous challenge faced by the searchers is this is a "cold lead". He was overdue by 6 days before reported missing. He left September 2nd for a 3-day trip and was reported missing on September 10th (when he failed to show up for a scheduled event with friends). Basically, the searchers are looking for someone who's about a week past his expected return date.

More about this incident is being discussed here (including links to recent developments):
