STARK, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say a 62-year-old Dalton man escaped without injury after surviving nearly 33 hours alone in Nash Stream State Forest.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1OusDli ) Fish and Game officials were notified around 8:30 a.m. Sunday that John Paquette never returned to his group following a day of mineral exploration at the state forest in Stark.

Officials say Paquette fell behind fellow explorers during a hike into Diamond Ledge on Saturday. A search was conducted, but group members recalled that Paquette said he was prepared to spend the night out and assumed that was his plan.

Conservation officers, Forest and Lands officials and a K-9 team searched the area after Parquette didn’t return to camp Sunday morning. He was found five miles from where he was last seen.
