MISSOULA — A man from Utah has reportedly been found alive and well after missing for five days.

Kaden Laga walked into one of the camps set up for his search and rescue in an Idaho wilderness area early Friday.

Laga was separated from his family while on a horseback trip.

The family says he went missing in the Selway Wilderness west of Twin Lakes with limited supplies and clothing.

Authorities were notified when he failed to reach the trailhead on Sunday.

Since then there's been an extensive search effort with no avail, until Friday morning.

Dog teams, search and rescue ground teams and helicopters were used in the search for Laga.

Laga's family want to thank everyone for their support and prayers.
