Forest rangers located the missing Mount Marcy hiker Saturday, a 46-year-old Greenwich woman.
The hiker had planned to hike Marcy, Skylight and Gray mountains Friday, starting at 4:30 a.m., according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
When the woman didn’t return by Saturday morning, she was reported missing to DEC dispatch in Ray Brook.
She was located by forest ranger Sarah Bode on a trail and walked out under her own power at about 3 p.m.
She was brought to AMC Lake Placid and treated for frostbite.
The search included multiple forest rangers, a Lake Colden caretaker, and the state police in a helicopter.
