A hiker missing since Saturday in Eagle County was found in good condition Sunday. Members of the Vail Mountain Rescue Team were able to locate the man and the Eagle County Sheriff's Department reports that the missing hiker was found to be in good shape with no serious injuries. The man who's name hasn't been released was reported missing by a friend he had been hiking with. The two men were climbing to the 14–thousand foot summit on the Mount of the HolyCross and were separated when one of the men wanted to take a rest. The hiker who continued on to the peak found only his friend's backpack on the way down and called authorities on his cellphone to report the other man missing. The two men are experienced outdoorsmen who had hiked together before.
