Overdue hunter found in northern NH woods

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURG, N.H. (AP) - A 68-year-old hunter was found cold and wet but in good condition after getting lost in the northern New Hampshire woods.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says Norman Colburn of Laconia was last seen by a hunting companion Saturday morning while hunting deer in Pittsburg. When Colburn failed to appear in the afternoon, his companion called for assistance.

Conservation officers on all-terrain vehicles eventually located Colburn about 10:25 p.m., cold but in good shape.

Officials say he'd been overcome by darkness, wet falling snow and steep terrain and had decided to settle in for the night under a tree.
