COUGAR, WA (AP) — Authorities say an Ohio man has been found alive after he went missing nearly a week ago on a hike near Mount St. Helens in Washington state.
The Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday in an emailed statement that 40-year-old Matthew B. Matheny was found alive on a flank of the volcano and was being flown to a hospital.
Further details about his condition were not immediately available.
Matheny, of Warren, Ohio, was been seen by friends on Aug. 9, when he borrowed a car and headed to the Blue Lake Trail.
A sheriff’s deputy found the borrowed Subaru Outback at the trailhead on Saturday.
