An area hunter who went missing last week has been located. According to the Highway Patrol, a 54 year old hunter had been hunting on U.S. Forest land near the southwest portion of Phelps County. Troopers brought in a helicopter with Infra-Red imaging which was able to detect a flashing light in a thickly wooded area. Troopers discovered the man who was using a disposable lighter to signal the copter. He had injured his ankle and was not able to move from the area. He was transferred to an area hospital and is currently recovering at this time. His name was not released.
