Body of Missing Canadian Man Found on Mt. Washington

A group of hikers spotted the body of a missing Canadian man on Saturday near Tuckerman's Ravine trail on Mount Washington.

The hikers found the body off trail at an altitude of 5,300 feet on the mountain.  Officials believe that the body is that of Francois Carrier, 47, of Drummondville, Quebec.

Carrier was reported missing on May 12 when he failed to return home from a trip to the Mount Washington area.

He was last seen on Monday, May 9 around the Pinkham Notch area.  Searchers with dogs and helicopters combed area for five days with no clues.

Medical examiners did a preliminary investigation of the scene Sunday morning, and allowed the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department to remove the body.

Carrier will be transported to Concord where an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
