RICHMOND (AP) — A legally blind hiking magazine editor who went missing along the Appalachian Trail in Virginia has been found in good condition.

Authorities say 41-year-old Kenneth Knight of Ann Arbor, Mich., was found around 5 p.m. Saturday. He was last seen on Sunday.

Friends had reported him missing when he didn’t meet up with his hiking group and then missed his flight home Wednesday.

Knight is a production editor for Backpacking Light magazine.

Backpacking Light chief executive officer Ryan Jordan says Knight set a brush fire several miles from where he was last seen that attracted the attention of firefighters.

Knight was being taken to a local hospital, but Jordan says he did not think Knight was injured.
