After 12-plus hours somewhere on the Mantario Trail, the missing hiker has been found.
Lac du Bonnet RCMP received a report on Monday, July 25, at approximately 7:15 p.m. that a woman was in distress, on the Mantario Trail in Whiteshell Provincial Park.
It was reported that a 34-year-old female was hiking alone and had contacted a friend earlier in the day advising that she was not feeling well, but was going to continue on to the next campsite.
Several hours later, her friend received an SOS message from her satellite device. The hiker's location was determined, however, it was not accessible by vehicle, and no one was able to contact her due to lack of cell coverage.
Today at 6:00 a.m., RCMP officers were flown by helicopter to the female’s last known location and she was found. She was taken to hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
