Guopeng Li Obituary, Death – It was reported on Saturday to the conservation officers of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department that a hiker who had been out for the day on the 8.6-mile Bridle Path/Falling Waters Loop had gone missing.

The family member had been following the hiker’s progress throughout the day. A member of the hiker’s family had been keeping tabs on the hiker’s location throughout the day. The novice hiker’s family claimed that they did not know what kind of equipment he was taking with him because they did not know him well enough. Because the temperatures were so close to zero, conservation officers became concerned for the hiker’s safety and began searching for him. This search was initiated because the temperatures were so close to zero.
At the stroke of two o’clock in the morning on Sunday, a team of conservation officers had already made it to Franconia Ridge.

The footprints continued further away from the trail until they came to an end in a drainage that was situated between Mount Lincoln and Little Haystack Mountain.
At approximately 6:45 in the morning, the body of the hiker who had been reported missing was found by conservation officers in the town of Franconia. The location was approximately a half mile away from the Falling Waters Trail. At 2:30 in the afternoon on Sunday, the search and rescue team arrived back at the trailhead where they had started.
