ISHPEMING, Mich. (WLUC) - Marquette County Deputies and Search and Rescue volunteers saved a lost hiker in Al Quaal Park Saturday night.

Around 8:00 p.m. Saturday, the Marquette County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to Al Quaal Park in Ishpeming for a lost hiker.

63-year-old Daniel Filbrandt began hiking around 2:30 p.m., but got lost in a swampy area north of Deer Lake. It became dark and Filbrandt did not have a flashlight with him, so he called 911. Search and rescue personnel used the coordinates from his cell phone call to locate him. He was rescued and brought back to the parking lot area and reconnected with his family members. No medical attention was needed.
