Just before midnight crews found a 40-year-old male who had lost his way on the Mount Olympus trail Wednesday.
The man parked his car at the trailhead at 5 a.m. and made his way up the trail, according to Unified Police Department Lt. Justin Hoyal. The hike began to go terribly wrong when he lost his way and all his water.
Police weren't sure if he was on his way up or down the mountain when he got lost.
"We still haven't found him," Hoyal said as of 11 p.m., Wednesday. But about forty minutes later crews found him closer to the peak than the base and just off the Mount Olympus trail.
"He is doing well ... just a little dehydrated," Hoyal said.
At 7:30 p.m., the man, originally from the Salt Lake City area, but who now lives in Oregon, called police on his cell phone and told them he thought he was in Heughs Canyon and had no water.
Search-and-rescue crews were sent on 46 assists in 2011, according to the Search and Rescue Advisory Board. Five of those rescues were at Mount Olympus; Wednesday's rescue attempt is the fifth assist for 2012.
