STEVENSON, Wash. (AP) -- A climber missing on Mount St. Helens has been found safe.

The Skamania County sheriff's office says a Forest Service ranger found her Monday morning and they're hiking down.

The sheriff's office says 55-year-old Lori Williams of Aloha, Ore., was reported overdue Sunday night. She had decided earlier to continue toward the summit after her climbing party turned around because of bad weather and a sick climbing member.
