A dirt biker who was missing in the Colorado backcountry since last night has been found and is reportedly doing just fine at this hour.

Mesa County Search and Rescue teams went out early this morning to look for a man who was dirt biking in a remote area, about two hours off of Highway 330 near the Garfield / Mesa County line.

Just before 10 a.m. Thursday search crews found the 40-year-old.

They're still working to transport him back to a command post they'd set up for the search and rescue operation but he's ok after spending the night in the wilderness alone.
