NASHUA, N.H. – Investigators are hoping the public can lead them to the person they say intentionally sunk a 25-foot boat in a New Hampshire river.

Witnesses said they saw a man in a red pickup truck back down a boat ramp in Mine Falls and push the vessel into the Nashua River on April 29. It sank a short time later.

Police said the motor was missing from the boat, leaving a large hole through its hull. Investigators believe that is a sign that boat was intentionally abandoned.
