SHELTON — A 10-year-old boy was hungry and thirsty after spending nearly 24 hours lost in the Olympic National Forest, and he was very happy Friday to be reunited with his family.
Mason County sheriff's Det. William Adam says Nathan Hernandez was spotted by a King County sheriff's helicopter that directed ground searchers to the boy in a heavily wooded area. They gave him food and water. He was checked by medics and returned to his family.
Adam says dozen of searchers from King, Kitsap, Thurston, Pierce and Mason counties searched for the boy after he was reported missing Thursday evening.
Adam says the boy's family was vacationing from Texas. The boy was picking berries near Lake Cushman when he became separated from his sister.
