Authorities found a 67-year-old Naches woman who was reported missing while hiking near Cliffdell Wednesday.
The woman and her husband had gone for a day trip in the area, hiking separately, Yakima County Sheriff’s spokesman Casey Schilperoort said. Her husband called for help around noon when she did not meet up with him at their agreed-upon rendezvous point, Schilperoort said.
Rescuers were concerned that the woman did not have the necessary gear to survive a night in the woods, Schilperoort said. She was found shortly after 2:30 p.m.
