PINKHAM NOTCH, N.H. (AP) - Investigators are hoping that visitors to the White Mountains this holiday weekend might turn up new clues in a nearly 13-year-old unsolved death.

On Nov. 15, 2001, 52-year-old Louise Chaput left her home in Sherbrooke, Quebec, and traveled to New Hampshire for a solo hiking trip.

Chaput had a reservation at the Appalachian Mountain Club Pinkham Notch camp the night of Nov. 15, but never checked in. She was reported missing four days later. She was found stabbed to death on Nov. 22 off the Glen Boulder Trail in Pinkham Notch, south of the lodge, near Mount Washington.

WMUR-TV reports the attorney general's office is asking hikers to be on the lookout for items belonging to Chaput, such as her car keys and a pendant with an "S'' design.
