Cook, MN -

A missing hunter in Cook, Minnesota has been found alive, suffering from hypothermic conditions, after going missing Monday afternoon.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office says David Quiser told family he was going hunting around 1:30 on Christmas Day. Authorities say the 72-year-old failed to return home by 10 o'clock that night.

The County Rescue Squad searched the area with no luck.

Around 4:20 Tuesday afternoon, a passerby on Highway 53 found Quiser in the Gheen area.

Authorities say his pickup apparently became stuck last night, and after spending the night in his truck, he started walking out today in search of help. 

He has been taken to the Cook Hospital.
