Hiker Rescued In NH Mountains

CONCORD,N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire fish and game officials say they have safely rescued an 84-year-old man who became lost while hiking in the Ossipee Mountains.

State Conservation Officer Dale Gargac said New Hampshire Fish and Game authorities got a 911 call Wednesday afternoon from Victor Hobden of Bellbrook, Ohio, saying he had lost his way in the vicinity of Shaw Mountain.

Gargac said he was found about a mile from a logging road, and safely brought out on an all-terrain vehicle.

Gargac said the man wasn’t familiar with the area and was hiking alone without a map, GPS or compass.
