Authorities in New Hampshire used a drone as part of their search around the lake near the border with Maine, WMUR reported.
‘New Hampshire Fish and Game put their airboat on the ice and checked the areas of the lake that are open water, as well as used a remote vehicle to check under the ice,’ New Hampshire State Police Lt. James Fogarty said.
A foot search was also underway and helicopters were deployed to assist the effort.
Kristin Haralabatos says her friend Sinead Lyons wanted to go for a hike with her dog in the area around the New Hampshire lake near the Maine border
‘We’re asking the public to continue to send in tips,’ Fogarty said. ‘If they have information that would lead us to the whereabouts of Miss Lyons, we would appreciate their calls. We have already received several calls, and some of this information has been fruitful.’
Haralabatos said she hoped for the best for her friend, ‘but this is very, very unlike her.’
‘Through my heart, I am just praying that she is OK,’ Haralabatos said.
