PINKHAM NOTCH, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say they have found the body of a Canadian hiker who had been missing for weeks.

Lt. Wayne Saunders says hikers found the body of 47-year-old Francois Carrier of Drummondville, Quebec, off the Tuckerman Ravine trail on Mount Washington Saturday.

Carrier was reported missing on May 12, when he did not return home from a hiking trip to the Mount Washington area.

Searchers combed the Pinkham Notch area utilizing dogs and helicopters for five days, but found no clues to Carrier’s location.

Saunders said about 25 rescuers from multiple search and rescue operations transported Carrier’s body down the mountain from an elevation of 5,300 feet. The body was taken to the Medical Examiner’s office in Concord for an autopsy to determine cause of death.
