Hiker found, alive, but missing teeth

From the Salt Lake Tribune:

A hiker missing in Washington County since Sunday afternoon was located Tuesday on Red Mountain after falling.

Search and rescue crews found Jim Williamson, 49, of Salt Lake City, about 8:45 a.m. Tuesday off the Gunsight Trail where he had fallen in a brushy area, said Washington County Sheriff's Lt. Cory Pulsipher.

It was unclear how badly Williamson was injured but he did take a "pretty good tumble" and "knocked most of his teeth out," Pulsipher said.

Williamson went hiking Sunday morning and was reported missing about 4:45 p.m. when he didn't return, Pulsipher said.

Crews spotted him Tuesday morning and were trying to reach Williamson on foot to move him and fly him to Dixie Regional Medical Center by helicopter about 11 a.m. today, the Spectrum newspaper reported.
