JAFFREY, N.H. (AP) - Rescue workers had a busy night on New Hampshire's Mount Monadnock.

Conservation officers got the call just after 3 p.m. Tuesday that a hiker had injured her ankle and needed assistance. Several hours later they located 32-year-old Jocelyn Frain of Hinsdale near the summit. Rescuers say she worked her way partly down the mountain before rescuers reached her with a litter.

On the way down the mountain with Frain, rescuers were passed by 27-year-old Douglas Phenan of Concord at about 6 p.m., headed up the mountain. They would hear from him several hours later, after darkness fell and he became disoriented. He had no map or gear to assist him.

Rescuers headed back up the mountain and escorted Phenan back to his car by 10:45.
