Errol, NH – Authorities believe they have located the body of a man missing for almost 20. State Police Troop F said they located the vehicle that 26-year-old Tony Imondi was last seen in before going missing in 1998. Imondi had been last seen on July 1st of ‘98 leaving Bill’s Seafood in Errol in his girlfriends 1996 Ford Ranger after attending a horseshoe tournament.

After family and friends did not hear from, or see him for several days they contacted NH State Police Troop F to report him missing.  Air, ground, and dive teams searched all over the Errol area and along the Androscoggin River and Lake Gloriette, located in Dixville to no avail.

Over the past month the State Police Troop F Detectives and the NH Fish and Game Dive Team focused on an area of the Androscoggin in Errol just a few miles south of Errol village. Fish and Game utilized divers in some areas and a side scan SONAR, which was able to detect an image on the bottom of the river. Analysis of the image was consistent with a truck similar to the Ford Ranger. Further inspection of the area revealed that the image was in fact the missing Ford Ranger.

Yesterday the Ford Ranger was removed from the river with skeletal remains located inside. The Medical Examiner’s Office will examine the remains for identification.

Hiker Dies On Mount Washington

by Christian Mower on September 18, 2017

Sargent’s Purchase, NH – Authorities say a 66-year-old Maine man died after becoming ill while hiking up Mount Washington. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says Rolf Diamon, of Windham, Maine, was hiking up the Lion Head Trail with his son Saturday morning when he became sick and collapsed approximately 2 ½ miles from the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center.

The son and other hikers began performing CPR immediately while emergency crews were called. A call for help was made and rescue personnel from Fish and Game, Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue (AVSAR), Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) and Gorham Ambulance were mobilized and responded to the emergency call.

Due to the nature of the medical emergency, air support was requested from the National Guard unit from Concord. A Black Hawk helicopter responded to the request and was able to extract Diamon from the mountain by hoisting him up into the aircraft using a winch.

Unfortunately, despite all the exhaustive efforts by the many hikers who provided constant resuscitation for over an hour; the arrival of 1st Responders with an AED; and the use of a helicopter to get him quickly off the mountain, he did not survive.

The medical condition he was suffering from wasn’t immediately known.
