YOSEMITE, Calif. (AP) - A California man was found after going missing for six days while hiking in the back country of Yosemite National Park.

KTVU-TV reports the National Park Service confirmed Friday that Alan Chow of Oakland was found hydrated and in good health.

Chow was last seen Feb. 17 at the Hetch Hetchy entrance of the park, but wasn't officially noticed as missing until Tuesday.

A National Park Service ranger in a helicopter spotted Chow, who was backpacking alone, around noon on Friday above Wapama Falls in the Hetch Hetchy area after what was described as an extensive search effort.

Yosemite Park Ranger Scott Gediman says Chow got lost, and then set up his tent and stayed put until he was found.

Gediman says Chow used melted snow for drinking water, and had food and warm clothing.
