The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says two hikers who became separated from their groups in separate incidents had to be rescued on Mount Lafayette in the White Mountains.

A 36-year-old Barnstead woman was having trouble descending around 7:30 p.m. on Saturday while a 911 call came in that a group of five female teenagers from Quebec were missing. The temperatures were in the mid-40s with rain and wind.

Four of the teens made it to a hut but left a companion near the summit, who was having difficulty moving. Rescuers found the teen off trail, cold and tired around 11:20 p.m. and helped her to the hut, where she spent the night with the school group. They hiked out Sunday with adult chaperones. A conservation officer helped the other hiker, who arrived at trailhead around 12:45 a.m.
