Missing Pa. Hiker Found Unharmed in NJ


A Pennsylvania hiker who went missing overnight in New Jersey's Worthington State Forest was found unharmed.

Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Larry Hajna tells The Express-Times of Easton, Pa. that the 54-year-old Kresgeville man made a 911 call around 9 p.m. Saturday. He had been hiking through some trails in the forest earlier in the day, but got lost shortly after dusk.

The man spent the night in the forest before he was found around 10:15 a.m. Sunday by state park police. He was taken to a hospital for an evaluation, but did not appear to be injured.

His name was not released.

The forest is within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, just above the water gap in Hardwick Township.
