Rescue crews have reportedly found a hiker who went missing while hiking near New Hampshire’s Mount Moosilauke on Saturday.
Officials say the hiker was found at roughly 9:30 a.m. on Monday.
The hiker, Arun Anand, 21, of Collegeville, Pennsylvania, was on a hike sponsored by Dartmouth College on Saturday when he didn’t show up at The Moosilauke Ravine Lodge.
Fish and Game officials were notified of the missing hiker at roughly 8 p.m. that night and organized an overnight search comprising of Conservation Officers, volunteers from the Pemigewasset Valley Search and Rescue (PEMI SAR), New England K-9 Search & Rescue (NEK9), and Upper Valley Wilderness Response Team (UVWRT).
A more thorough search was conducted throughout the day Sunday using the same volunteer organizations plus several Dartmouth College students and the newly formed Lakes Region Search and Rescue Team. All told approximately 50 searchers scoured the woodlands around the point that Anand was last seen. In addition to the ground searchers, Fish and Game used two helicopters to conduct aerial searches of the area.
Officials said Anand was not wearing any shoes when they found him. He was taken to a nearby hospital, but no further information is available yet on where the hiker was found or his condition.
