Hiker Found Alive, Darwin Award Will Have To Wait

Search-and-rescue crews have found a hiker who has been missing since last weekend.

Mary Hyde Wingfield was found in North Cascades National Park shortly after 2:30 p.m, said Chief Ranger Kinsey Shilling.

Well that is good to hear.
Searchers had discovered two shoe prints that match Wingfield's size and the make of shoe she may have been wearing, Shilling said. They also found a water bottle, a dental insurance card, a grocery store membership card and a note on her employer's letterhead indicating she was in an emergency state without food or water.

The note, signed by Wingfield, said she was heading downstream.
