ROME, Maine - Rescuers have found a 57-year-old hiker dead in Rome, Maine, after he had planned an afternoon of snowshoeing to the summit of Round Top Mountain.

The man, from Mount Vernon, Maine, was found just after 9 p.m. Thursday along a hiking trail. He was last seen at about 1 p.m., when he left a parking area for his hike.
 
Maine game wardens say although it appears the cause of death may be exposure, the medical examiner's office has been contacted. The man's name hasn't been released pending family notification.
