According to the Latah County Sheriff's Lieutenant Brannon Jordan, search and rescue crews were called to the campsite Bovill around 8:00 Sunday night. They found Lewiston resident Donald Cochran around 10:00.
Jordan said a Medstar helicopter using a thermal camera helped find a fire that Cochran had started. Jordan said it took rescuers a couple hours to walk Cochran to safety because he was deep in the woods and he had back pain. Cochran was treated on scene and refused ambulance transport.
