KGW-TV reported it was the second time in five years this boy had been rescued from a wilderness hike.
The Multnomah County Sheriff's office County officials expected it would take several hours to get 16-year-old Alex Irving down the mountain where he was found.
At approximately 4:50 p.m. Saturday, deputies responded to reports of a lost hiker in the area of Ponytail Falls. Irvin became separated from his hiking group around 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
Lt. Steve Alexander of the Multnomah County Sheriff's office said up to 30 rescuers, a police dog unit and an Oregon Air National Guard helicopter searched for him overnight.
Irving also went missing for two days near Mount St. Helens in 2008, when he was 11.
