CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) - Police say a hiker is in good condition after being rescued from a heavily wooded area in Montgomery County.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office says searchers found the 76-year-old woman around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday in the Bottom’s Creek area near the borders of Floyd and Roanoke counties. It took rescue teams another hour and a half to get the woman out of the woods due to the density of the area.

The sheriff’s office says the woman called dispatchers around 5:30 p.m. Monday and reported she was lost.

Assisting in the search were numerous fire departments, rescue squads, search and rescue teams, and law enforcement agencies.
