Missing hiker walks out on his own

MOUNT RAINIER NATIONAL PARK  (AP) — A hiker who didn’t return home from a day trip to Mount Rainier has been found.

Mount Rainier National Park spokeswoman Lee Snook said the hiker walked out of the area on his own shortly after noon on Wednesday. The hiker didn’t have any injuries, but she said it wasn’t clear why he had stayed out overnight in the park.

Crews began searching for the man on Wednesday morning because the man who went out for a day hike Tuesday didn’t return to his vehicle. Officials say the hiker appears to have been visiting the Kautz Creek area of the park located between the Nisqually entrance to the park and Longmire.
