A hiker from Missouri missing for two wintry days in Colorado's Holy Cross Wilderness Area has been found suffering from frostbite and hypothermia.

Vail Mountain Rescue Teams had been looking for 23 year old Jacob Gatley since he was reported missing Saturday night. Gatley and his brother were hiking in the Holy Cross Wilderness when the two became separated.

Gately was wearing only jeans, a fleece garment, a rain jacket and tennis shoes. The area had received up to a foot of snow. Searchers spent most of the day Sunday and this morning looking for him.

Gatley's family says they are glad to have him back and are grateful to the search crews who found him.
