Santa Clarita, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) Authorities today found a hiker missing overnight in Towsley Canyon.

Brian Napoli, 24, called friends at 4:51 p.m. Monday to say he was lost in the canyon, which has a 5.3-mile hiking trail, the sheriff's department reported.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Tom Bryski said 10-12 searchers looked in the area just west of the Golden State (5) Freeway near Santa Clarita until about 1:15 a.m. today, when the search was temporarily called off. The search resumed at daybreak.

Napoli was found shortly before 10 a.m., and he was airlifted from a hilly location to a command post area, the sheriff's department reported. He appeared to be OK, but was dehydrated and will receive a medical exam, his mother told FOX 11.
