PORTLAND – A man and his 6-year-old nephew were found safe Friday morning after they were reported missing Thursday while hiking near Multnomah Falls, deputies said.

Dean Adams, 50, from Estacada and his nephew Kyle Miller from Gresham were dropped off at Larch Mountain around 4 p.m. and were supposed to meet their party at the falls three hours later.

Search teams were dispatched from Multnomah Falls and Larch Mountain and discovered the two around 10:25 a.m., said Lt. Derrick Peterson with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office.

The two hikers were checked by medical staff after they were discovered near Horsetail Falls, about three miles from Multnomah Falls. The two were reportedly doing fine.

Adams and Miller didn't make it to meet their party Thursday night so they hunkered down and waited for the morning when they were found.
