Search and rescue crews pulled a stranded Davis County man off a mountain Saturday morning, just months after they rescued him from the same area.
The 52-year-old man began hiking the Great Western Trail above Fernwood Park, near Layton, about 5 p.m. Friday but never returned home, according to Davis County Deputy Jammie Embley.
Crews briefly conducted a search for him Friday night, but called it off after the man's family said he had food, water, and adequate clothing to last through the night.
The search resumed at first light Saturday morning, Embley said. By about 9 a.m., an AirMed helicopter was deployed and crews located the man about 10:30 a.m. Embley said the man was checked out by medical teams and released at the scene.
