CONCORD, NH (AP) — A Massachusetts woman who went missing during a weekend hike in New Hampshire was found dead on her 20th birthday on Wednesday.

Emily Sotelo of Westford, Massachusetts, had planned to climb three peaks in the White Mountains on Sunday. Officials said her mother dropped her off at a campsite near Franconia Notch before dawn and alerted authorities when she failed to return by late afternoon.
