Out of state hikers on night trek up Monadnock thought lost, walk off mountain safely


JAFFREY - A miscommunication between friends led to a search team being called out to find two hikers at Monadnock State Park.

Nebojsa Novakovik called police at 9 p.m. Monday to report his friends Bunrorn Chan, 32, and Josiah General, 34, both of Hamilton, Ontario, were overdue from a hike along the White Dot Trail. The pair reportedly set out at 7 p.m. that evening and did not have flashlights or proper hiking gear for the predicted weather conditions, officials said.

A short time after rescuers arrived, the two men exited the trail. According to state Fish and Game officials, the hikers had not properly discussed their hiking arrangements and the caller was unaware of when the two were planning to return to the car.

New Hampshire Fish and Game reminds hikers to prepare for the unexpected by leaving adequate time to hike and by carrying the essential equipment such as flashlights or headlamps and extra layers and to know your physical limitations. Hikers should also leave a detailed itinerary with friends or family.
