CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (March 5, 2013)—Nicholas Joy, 17, of Medford, Mass., was found alive early Tuesday at Maine's Sugarloaf ski resort two days after he disappeared.
The Maine Warden Service says a snowmobiler found Joy Tuesday morning on a trail off the western side of Sugarloaf Mountain.
Joy was taken to an area hospital for evaluation.
The 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.
Authorities say Joy and his father split up and took separate trails from the top Sunday, and the father called for help when his son didn't meet him.
Wardens say Joel Paul, a snowmobiler from Massachusetts who was not part of the search party, found the boy.
