Missing 93-year-old mushroom picker found in Wash.

Searchers have found a 93-year-old mushroom picker who had been missing for three days near Mount Adams in southwest Washington.

The Skamania County sheriff's office says searchers found the Newberg, Ore., woman, Sonn Souve, early Thursday about one-third of a mile from the search base in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. She had been missing since Tuesday.

The sheriff's office says Souve suffered some minor injuries and has been taken to Skyline Hospital in White Salmon.

She had covered herself with brush and bark to keep warm as temperatures dropped into the 30s. She was in thick underbrush and timber.
