Missing Hiker Found - Alive!

Missing hiker Daniel Mays, a forestry management student at Brighton college was found by loggers working late yesterday evening just before sunset. Daniel had fallen in a remote area know as Hidden Valley. Daniel had injured a leg and was suffering from hunger and fatigue, but was otherwise OK. Daniel fell near a small stream that provided him with ample drinking water. Strangely one of the logger's dogs from a crew run by Frenchy DeSalle had found Daniel and even brought Daniel some food scraps. The loggers went to find the dog when it did not come for dinner on time and discovered the pup caring for Daniel.
Ranger Bill and his crew arrived to provide first aid and to get Daniel air-lifted to safety at Knotty Pine Hospital. Daniel is doing well at KPH and hopes to see the pup and all the men involved in his rescue.
