      The 84-year-old hiker from Sauquoit who went missing five days ago has been found alive.



      New York State Police confirm that Donald Combs was found at about 1:30 pm Thursday afternoon, but could not provide an exact location.


      Troopers say he was dehydrated and very weak. He was taken to St. Luke's Hospital via helicopter for evaluation.


      Combs left a note at his home last Thursday, saying he would be gone for a day or two, and that he was hiking to Forestport, in the southern Adirondacks.
