Missing hiker found alive in Little Cottonwood Canyon

LITTLE COTTONWOOD CANYON — A search for an overdue hiker in Little Cottonwood Canyon ended Friday afternoon when the woman was found safe near Tanners Flat Campground.

Dawn Rohde, 41, went hiking in the Maybird Gulch area near the White Pine trailhead about 7 a.m. Thursday, according to Unified police. She was expected to be back about 2 p.m. but hadn't been heard from since.

Unified police and the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Search and Rescue team were looking for Rohde Friday. Family and friends got word at about 3:30 p.m. that she was found alive.

Officials said she was in fair condition and had spent the night after getting lost.

"I have a lot of mixed emotions," said her husband, David Rohde. "I just really appreciate everybody that helped out. We're really, really thankful."
