A hiker has been found, unharmed, after she was missing overnight at Laurel Ridge State Park in southwestern Pennsylvania.

Officials with the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources have refused to release information about the incident, beyond initially reporting the woman's fate.

State police say the woman, whose name has not been released, was hiking with someone else in the state-owned park when they became separated. The woman was reported missing about 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

The 13,625-acre park covers portions of Fayette, Somerset and Westmoreland counties about 45 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

Police said this morning that search dogs helped locate the woman, who was reportedly unharmed.
