RAW: Missing Yosemite hiker found safe and sound

May 21, 2012

John Paul Chaufan Field, the missing hiker in Yosemite National Park, has
been found safe and in good condition. He was spotted by the park’s
contract helicopter at approximately 3:15 p.m. Monday afternoon near Edith
Lake, approximately five miles east of Kibbie Lake, the point where he was
last seen.

Once Chaufan Field was spotted by the helicopter, Yosemite National Park
Rangers contacted him and found him to be unharmed and in good health. He
is currently being transported from the backcountry to the Hetch Hetchy
Ranger Station.

Yosemite National Park would like to thank all of the cooperating agencies
for their excellent work and teamwork in the positive resolution to this
search and rescue operation.
