ELLINGTON, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman reporting missing after going for a hike has been found alive in the woods.

State police say 45-year-old Kimberly Kasulis, of Somers, was found Monday by searchers near the Soap Stone Mountain Trail, which runs near the Ellington-Somers line. She was being taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

Kasulis was last seen Saturday on the trail, a spot that her family told police she frequently goes for hikes.

Her vehicle had been found abandoned in the area and her cell phone was found nearby.

Teams of volunteers, firefighters, police and dogs had been involved in the search.

Authorities have not said what may have happened to Kasulis.
