PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Multnomah County authorities say a hiker lost overnight in the Columbia Gorge was found Friday morning.

The sheriff’s office says another hiker called 911 to report encountering Connie Dooney near a switchback.

The 44-year-old woman from Longview, Wash., got separated from two hiking companions Thursday near Wahkeena Springs and Devils Rest, in the Multnomah Falls area.

The sheriff’s office says searchers were told Dooney was in good condition, and got a bottle of water and a trail snack from the hiker who found her.

Search and rescue workers set out Friday morning to bring her out of the woods to her family.
