WOODSTOCK, N.H. — New Hampshire Fish and Game Department officers are searching for a Dartmouth College student who went missing after a hike.

The department was notified about 8 p.m. Saturday that 21-year-old Arun Anand, of Collegeville, Pennsylvania, failed to show up at a lodge following a college-sponsored hike at Mount Moosilauke.

About 50 people searched the area around the point that Anand was last seen. Two helicopters were used.

The search was resuming Monday.

Rescuers came to the aid of two other hikers Sunday who were stranded overnight in Pinkham Notch. They were hindered by high winds and snow.

The department said there’s still a lot of snow between 2,500 feet and 4,500 feet of elevation, and many hikers have recently been finding themselves lost off trail.
