The Maine Warden Service says a snowmobiler found Nicholas Joy, of Medford, Mass., this morning on a trail off the western side of Sugarloaf Mountain. 

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

The Maine Warden Service says a snowmobiler found Nicholas Joy, of Medford, Mass., Tuesday morning on a trail off the western side of Sugarloaf Mountain. Joy is being 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 Joseph Paul, a snowmobiler from Warwick, Mass., who was not part of the search party, found the boy.

Sugarloaf General Manager John Diller says Joy and his parents had a tearful reunion.
