Stepfather of Celina Cass out of hospital

August 2, 2011

STEWARTSTOWN, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man who was reportedly hospitalized hours before his 11-year-old stepdaughter's body was recovered from the Connecticut River is back in the community.

Witnesses say Wendell Noyes was taken away by ambulance Monday after lying down with his face in his arms outside a home where he had been staying in Stewartstown.

Hospital officials declined to say whether he was a patient. Shannon Towle of Towle's Mini-Mart says she sold Noyes cigarettes Tuesday morning.

Meanwhile, investigators are combing the area along the Connecticut River in Vermont and New Hampshire above where Celina Cass' body was found on Monday.

The girl had been missing almost a week when her body was found near a dam. An autopsy on her body was being conducted Tuesday in Concord.
