A man wanted on a warrant for stalking was treated for exposure to cold and possible hypothermia after spending a night in the woods of northern St. Louis County.

Joseph Ray Burell, 30, of Eagan, Minn., allegedly fled from authorities after a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 53 in Orr on Wednesday afternoon.  Burell was wanted on a warrant out of Blue Earth County.

Minnesota State Troopers and St. Louis County Sheriff's Deputies searched the area but were unable to locate Burell on Wednesday night.

Just before 7 a.m. Thursday, deputies responded to a report that Burell had emerged from the woods.  He was taken into custody and transported to the Cook Hospital, where he was held overnight for treatment.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said Burell was turned over to Blue Earth County authorities on Friday.
