Hiker Found

/ 97.3 The Eagle

Mounties say a missing 20-year-old hiker is alive and well after spending almost three days in the bush near Nanaimo. Spencer Hunt of Victoria was dressed lightly and not carrying supplies for spending the night outside when he became separated from his hiking group on Saturday. Dozens of searchers and volunteers, along with a dog, a helicopter and a drone combed the area around Ammonite Falls, where he disappeared. Constable Gary O’Brien says Hunt was spotted by a search helicopter just before noon and he’s being sent to a hospital for assessment.
