Hiker found OK after being reported missing on the Obsidian Trail
Phone service is poor in the area. Dispatch records show the man was reported missing around 6:13 p.m. Thursday after failing to return to a meeting point when expected by 2 companions, Sgt. Carrie Carver with the Lane County Sheriff's Office said.
Carver said records show search crews were on the trail Thursday night through the morning.
Later in the day, she reported that the hiker had been found.
"The hiker has been located and is in good health," Carver said.
The Obsidian Trail passes through the Three Sisters Wilderness. Access is limited by permits. The management plan allows 30 day hikers and 40 overnight visitors per day.
