IDLEYLD PARK, Ore. -- A rescue operation is underway after a missing hiker was found alive near Diamond Lake.

Brandy Rose Molatore, 43, of Roseburg is being flown in a National Guard helicopter to a nearby airfield, where she will be taken by ambulance to Mercy Medical Center. She has no severe injuries but is dehydrated, family friends said.

Molatore was reported missing to the sheriff’s office Thursday evening.
