BEND, Ore. (AP) - The Deschutes County sheriff’s office says searchers have located a 35-year-old Portland woman who apparently fell and became disoriented while hiking alone in the Three Sisters Wilderness.

Lt. Bryan Husband says another hiker came across the woman in the area of south Green Lake and called for help Tuesday morning. He told authorities the woman had been wandering around camp sites and said she walking in the area throughout the night.

The hiker stayed with the woman while a search team hiked out to them.

The woman reportedly called her family Monday night to say everything was OK and that she would call back in a few hours. When she didn’t, they contacted her boyfriend, who also set out to find her Tuesday.

Search and rescue volunteers carried her out on a wheeled litter. She was eventually transferred to a hospital in Bend to be evaluated.
