Missing teen hiker found safe in Grand Teton

MOOSE, Wyo. –  Searchers have found an Ohio girl that had been missing in Grand Teton National Park. She was found unharmed Saturday morning. 

Park officials say 16-year-old Fauna Jackson's boot was found Friday, but they did not believe the girl was wearing it when she disappeared Thursday morning. More than 115 people looked for the teen Friday, and Saturday's search will include ATV patrols and help from the Wyoming Civil Air Patrol.

Jackson, from Cincinnati, is part of a youth volunteer conservation corps called Groundwork USA. She was in Grand Teton this week helping to reroute a trail in the Triangle X Ranch area.

Co-workers say she took a break while working on the trail and hasn't been seen since.

Searchers used dogs and helicopters to look for her in the area of the Triangle X Ranch in Jackson Hole.
