Crews Locate Missing Hiker In Davis County
(KUTV) A Davis County man is safe after an unplanned hiking trip while on the Great Western Trail, near Kaysville.
Search and rescue crews located the 52-year-old man, who had gone missing in Fernwood Canyon on Friday.
The family was last contacted by the man at 5 p.m. on Friday. Davis County Search and Rescue was dispatched to the area but couldn't locate him initially.
Crews resumed the search on Saturday and found the man by helicopter. Davis County Search and Rescue teams are familiar with him, last spring they were sent out to find the same man, on the same trail.
Authorities say the terrain is very difficult and it's easy for hikers to get lost if they're not familiar with the area. Brittany Tait Has more on the story.
