Missing hunter located in Berkeley County

Posted: Updated:

A hunter who was reported missing in the Francis Marion Forest Friday morning has been found, according to the Berkeley County Rescue Squad.

Chief Bill Salisbury says the hunter was found this morning alert and conscious after getting lost while hunting deer. The man had been missing since noon Thursday.

The hunter was located after he was able to fire his rifle when he heard a DNR plane flying overhead, officials say. 

Salisbury says family members alerted authorities of the missing man last night. 

The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office and the Berkeley County Rescue Squad assisted in the search.
