BRIMSON, Minn. (AP) — Rescuers have found a 62-year-old woman safe after she got separated from fellow kayakers in northeastern Minnesota.

The St. Louis County sheriff’s office says the group had launched onto the Cloquet River around 2 p.m. Saturday. During the trip, the Two Harbors woman became separated from the group and was later reported missing.

The county’s volunteer rescue squad launched two canoes to travel downstream from the woman’s vehicle. The rescuers found the woman’s kayak about three miles downstream and then conducted a land search.

The woman was found around 5:30 a.m. Sunday. She was cold and shivering but mobile and responded well to rescuers. She was taken by ambulance to a Two Harbors hospital for early stages of hypothermia, dehydration and bug bites.
