HENNIKER, N.H. (AP) -- A Massachusetts woman who was reported missing from a New Hampshire ski area Sunday has been found walking in a neighboring town.
Henniker police say Melanie Quinton, of Belmont, Mass., was at the Pats Peak ski area with her family Sunday afternoon when she disappeared. Authorities said she had a history of mental illness and of wandering off.
After a search involving numerous agencies, Quinton was found Monday afternoon in Hillsborough, where she was spotted by a member of the town's fire and rescue department. She was taken to Concord Hospital for an evaluation.
