FRACONIA, N.H. (AP) - Rescuers have come to the aid of a hiker who lost his way on a trail in New Hampshire’s White Mountains after he met with blowing snow, poor visibility, and low temperatures.

Conservation officers say 23-year-old Tyler Pase of Mattituck, New York, was able to provide accurate coordinates of his location with a GPS on Wednesday afternoon below the summit of Mount Lafayette. He was found at about 6:30 p.m. and given dry clothing. Pase was able to hike out with assistance.

Officers say he had planned to hike a 9-mile loop that traverses along Franconia Ridge, leaving hikers exposed to the elements for a considerable time.
