A hiker missing in Catalina State Park since Sunday morning was found Monday afternoon.

Jason Bruscha, 31, called his uncle from SaddleBrooke Country Club around 2:30 p.m., said Deputy Tom Peine, a Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman.

The uncle then notified the Sheriff's Department, which sent a helicopter to pick Bruscha up and bring him back to the search command center at Catalina State Park, Peine said.

Bruscha was dehydrated and had several abrasions on his legs. He was taken to Northwest Medical Center by ambulance for treatment, Peine said.
