A Massachusetts man not seen in two weeks may be in the White Mountains

A Massachusetts man not seen in two weeks may be in the White Mountains, according to New Hampshire authorities. William Neal Donovan, 65, of Cambridge, Mass. is an avid hiker, according to the Fish and Game officials, and his vehicle was parked at the Crawford Path parking lot in Carroll, N.H. on Sunday. Investigation determined that Donovan may have arrived at the trail parking on April 16. Police in Donovan’s home town checked his residence and found a note stating his desire to possibly hike Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Adams. He lived alone, and no one has come forward with any specifics related to his whereabouts. Until more information is received related to Donovan’s plans, officials have suspended search efforts. Lt. Ober noted that the area between the Crawford Path parking lot and the summit of Mt. Adams is vast with several hiking trails and miles of dense forest. The NH Fish & Game Department is asking the hiking community and anyone who might know Donovan or have any information as to his whereabouts to contact State Police Troop F at 603-846-3333, or email Lieutenant Mark Ober at mark.w.oberjr@wildlife.nh.gov.
