WOODSTOCK, N.H. — A Dartmouth College student who went missing on Mount Moosilauke on Saturday has been found alive, a state Fish and Game official said this morning.

Arun Hari Anand, 21, of Collegeville, Pa., went missing on the mountain during a college-sponsored hike on Saturday.

New Hampshire Fish and Game Col. Kevin Jordan said a search and rescue team located Anand around 9:30 a.m.

His condition wasn’t immediately known, but he “was walking, which is good,” Jordan said.

Anand spent two nights outside without proper equipment, Jordan said. He wasn’t wearing shoes when he was found.

“It’s a miracle he survived,” Jordan said. “It is still winter in the White Mountains.”

Fish and Game plans to look into the college-sponsored hike, which sent into the mountains several people who “were not prepared,” Jordan said.
