Authorities have located 76-year-old Adrienne De Vries at the Soudan Underground Mine State Park. De Vries is an employee of the park, and lost her way when walking down a trail.

She was found three miles away from the visitor center of the park, where she had originally started out.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Department says she was cold, but uninjured. She was transported to Ely Hospital to get checked as a precautionary.

Officials say the search began around 6:20 p.m. when the De Vries failed to clock out for the day.

Captain Tom Crossmon, with the St. Louis County Rescue Squad, says De Vries was picking up trash on the grounds of the park and never returned.
