A hiker is safe from harm after he was rescued by a Multnomah County search and rescue team in the Columbia River Gorge early Friday.

Rescuers began looking for the man after he became separated from his group Thursday and did not return before nightfall.

The hiker was found just before 1 a.m. Friday morning. Crews said he was cold and wet but otherwise uninjured. He was able to walk out with the searchers.

Deputies recommend hikers bring extra supplies, clothing, water and food in case of emergencies.
