Search for missing Colebrook hiker called off

COLEBROOK — Officials have called off the search for a missing hike in Colebrook.

The State Police say the call came in around 10:43 a.m.. Troopers from Troop B-Canaan reported to the area of Colebrook River Road to help the Metropolitan District Commission Police search for the hiker. DEEP, along with other fire departments from surrounding towns also responded.

About 3:30 p.m. officials said they had thoroughly searched the area and found nothing, and were calling off the search.

A fisherman had called 9-1-1 and reported hearing calls for help in the area. After hours of intensive searching, including using K9 teams and drones, no one was found. No unaccounted-for cars were found in the area, either.
