Coordinated Search Effort for Missing Hunter Will Continue For One More Day

CONCORD, N.H. -- Fish and Game's Chief of Law Enforcement, Colonel Jeff Gray, has announced that the search for missing hunter Russell Bussiere will continue on a scaled-down basis early Thursday morning (December 6).  The continued search will rely on specially trained search and rescue teams and additional volunteers are not being requested at this time.

Today's coordinated search efforts for the missing 70 year-old hunter once again focused on a 10 square mile high-probability zone and adjacent areas within Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown and Hooksett.

Extreme weather conditions during the past four days make it increasing unlikely that Mr. Bussiere has survived.  In addition to coordinated ground search teams, aerial searching by an Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter will also continue.

No further information is available at this time.
