A 63-year-old Lafayette woman who was reported missing Friday at Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park was found safe, according to the National Park Service.

Diane Salmon, who was last seen on the Bishop Pass Trail on Friday morning on the Northside of the first lake in Dusy Basin, was seen by other hikers on her way to the South Lake Trailhead in Inyo National Forest. She walked out with them and was reunited with her family Sunday.

Salmon had been hiking along trails with two family members and was intending to cross Bishop Pass to exit at South Lake in Inyo National Forest Friday night, the park service said.
