Crews search for missing New Jersey hiker in White Mountains
CUTTS GRANT, NH (WGME) -- The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is searching for a missing hiker from New Jersey.
Officials say 63-year-old Gregory Auriemma, of Brick, New Jersey, was reported last week as missing in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department initially worked off his last known location in North Conway, and later in the week developed information that he had stayed in the area of the Mizpah Spring Hut in Bean’s Grant on or about June 28.
Further information was then obtained linking Auriemma to an abandoned campsite near the Dry River Trail in Cutts Grant.
A rescue team confirmed on Saturday that the abandoned campsite was Auriemma’s.
The Dry River area is a very remote portion of the White Mountains; searchers must hike approximately four hours to access the area to begin searching.
Authorities are asking the public for any information available from hikers who have been in this area and may have met up with Auriemma.
If you have any information, please call (603) 271-3361.
