PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies have found a missing 85-year-old hiker and he's alive.
Authorities found Donald Buchanan of Temple City on Sunday morning after he went missing Saturday during a hike in Vincent Gap in the Angeles National Forest.
His son -- who is a sheriff's deputy -- found his parked car at the trailhead.
When rescuers found Buchanan, he was suffering from mild hypothermia from a night spent in the wilderness.
Authorities say Buchanan is an avid hiker who was well-prepared for his trip.
