Munising, MI –  (Great Lakes Radio News) -Officials with the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Alger County say a lost hiker was found this morning after an overnight search.

The 51-year-old Wisconsin man was reported overdue from a hike in the Miners Falls area of the park by his brother last night.

Searchers from several agencies looked for the man, and an aerial search was conducted by the U.S. Coast Guard helicopter from Traverse City.

Cell phone pings from the missing hiker’s phone helped narrow the search area and he was found just after 5:30 this morning near Miners Lake.

The man was in good condition and was able to hike out under his own power.
