ROSEBURG, Ore. — A cross-country skier missing in the Umpqua National Forest has been found alive and unhurt.

Douglas County Sheriff's spokeswoman Andrea Zielinski says friends of Adam Drummer reported him missing Tuesday night after he failed to show at their cabin.

Zielinski says members of the Search and Rescue Snow Cat Team found Drummer at about 9 a.m. Wednesday. The 32-year-old Bend resident told searchers he survived the night by building a snow cave and a small fire.
