Authorities in Coshocton County have found a hunter who got lost in the woods.

Deputies say Timothy Miller and his brother-in-law drove from Cleveland to Coshocton to hunt over the weekend.

Miller, 46, decided to stay behind when his brother-in-law decided to quit hunting Sunday night. He eventually got lost in the darkness.

Miller was finally found on Monday afternoon around 1 p.m.

“Thank you everybody, for everything. It was a long walk. I thought I was heading back, I lost the creek and I lost my way," said an exhausted Miller.

Miller was able to walk out of the woods on his own and was reunited with family members.

A passerby spotted Miller sitting on a guardrail and told him to get into his car where he taken to command center.

Search crews were looking for him near the county line on Ohio 83 and County Highway 410. Authorities had tried Miller's cell phone after he called authorities, but it had died.

After calling off the search Sunday night for darkness, the fire department and sheriff’s deputies resumed the search at 7 a.m. on Monday, using ATVs to cover more ground.
