Mass. teen missing for 2 days found alive in Maine

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (AP) — A 17-year-old skier has been found alive at Maine's Sugarloaf ski resort two days after disappearing.

Officials say searchers found Nicholas Joy, of Medford, Mass., this morning near a road off the western side of Sugarloaf Mountain.

The Maine Warden Service, the Sugarloaf ski patrol and others had been searching for Joy on skis, snowshoes and snowmobiles since Sunday afternoon, when he was reported missing after failing to meet up with his father.

Authorities say Joy and his father split up and took separate trails from the top on Sunday, and the father called for help when his son failed to meet with him.
