CONCORD, N.H. -- New Hampshire Fish and Game Department Conservation Officers have recovered the body of a Manchester man who fell to his death from Cathedral Ledge in North Conway in an apparent suicide. Steven J. Clark, of Manchester, N.H., age 52, was reported last seen by his wife about 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 26. She reported him missing to the Manchester Police Department on Sunday afternoon.
At approximately 4:30 p.m. on Monday, September 28, two climbers walking along the base of Cathedral Ledge in North Conway discovered Clark's body. They immediately hiked back down the trail and called for help, initiating the emergency response.
