PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Searchers have found a woman who was lost on a hike near Horsetail Falls in the Columbia River Gorge about 30 miles east of Portland.
KPTV reports ( http://bit.ly/1jtJc1m ) she was located in the Nesmith Point area Thursday morning with the help of a plane with a heat-sensing camera that detected her small campfire. She's reportedly cold but OK.
The Multnomah County sheriff's office says searchers covered more than 30 miles of trails looking for 33-year-old Jessica Wheeler of Wasco after she called for help Wednesday night. Deputies located her car at the Oneonta (oh'-nee-AHN'-tah) Gorge Trailhead.
Wheeler left Monday on a camping trip with her dog Sophie, a golden lab.
