Rescuers find missing Gorham teen unhurt

GORHAM — Rescuers found a missing teenager unharmed Friday, authorities said on Saturday.

Todd Bouchard, 18, of Gorham was dropped off at the Stoney Brook Trail on Thursday so he could go on a run, but he didn't return home. The teen's mother reported him missing late Thursday, according to N.H. Fish and Game.

Fish and Game conservation officers hiked through the night searching for Bouchard. Personnel from various agencies joined the search Friday morning — including a helicopter crew from the Maine Forest Service — before the teen was spotted around 4:30 p.m. off the trail in the southern ledges of Mount Moriah in an area that's extremely steep with dense brush, authorities said.

A rescue team reached Bouchard at 7:20 p.m., and he was reunited with his family around 10 p.m.
