Missing College Student Found Dead After Solo Hike in New Hampshire Mountains

A missing college student was found dead on Wednesday after she set out on a solo hike several days earlier in the White Mountains area of Franconia, N.H.

Emily Sotelo set off on her hike of Franconia Ridge on Sunday morning, said a news release from the New Hampshire Fish and Game (NHFG).

After she did not return later on that same day, a family member notified the NHFG.

“Due to the harsh weather conditions a search commenced Sunday evening and lasted through the night,” NHFG said.

“Searchers were hampered by high winds, cold temperatures, and blowing snow. Searchers spent the next two days looking for Sotelo and Tuesday afternoon tracks and items belonging to Sotelo were located at the headwaters of Lafayette Brook.”

Sotelo’s body was found at 11:00 am on Wednesday, and a state Army National Guard helicopter transferred her body to the Cannon Mountain Ski Area.
