Swanzey, NH -- The body of a hunter was recovered in Swanzey, N.H, early Tuesday morning, November 20, 2012. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department had been notified Monday night of an overdue hunter in the area of Talbot Hill Road.
Robert Lariviere Jr., age 51, of Swanzey, N.H., was reported to have gone deer hunting in the vicinity of Talbot Hill Road in Swanzey early Monday morning. His family reported him overdue to local police. Immediately thereafter, approximately 8:15 pm, personnel from New England K-9 Search and Rescue, NH Fish and Game Department, Swanzey Police Department, Swanzey Fire Department, Keene Fire Department, and Upper Valley Wilderness Rescue Team responded to the scene to conduct a search for the missing man.
