ALBANY, N.H. (AP) - A Lyman man is safe after getting lost while hiking and spending the night outside.

The 62-year-old man had planned to hike a 12.5 mile loop on the Downes Brook Trail and Albany on Thursday, New Hampshire Fish and Game said. His family called authorities when they hadn’t heard from him by 9 p.m.

Conservation officers passed within sight of him twice that night but he was unable to signal them, and they couldn’t hear him over the noise of a nearby river. He was able to continue hiking Friday morning and returned to the trailhead.

Officials are reminding hikers that snow and ice are likely to persist at higher elevations for several more weeks.
