LAND O' LAKES, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say a 15-year-old Minnesota girl who went missing after a hike in northern Wisconsin has been found.

An official with the Vilas County Sheriff's Department says Sunday night that India Lodis Orman was located. She does not appear to be seriously injured, but she was cold. Authorities are still gathering details and have no immediate information.

Authorities spent Sunday searching for Orman. She was last seen at the Conserve School, in Land O' Lakes, about 5 p.m. Saturday. It appears she went on a hike after dinner, but didn't return to her dorm room.

Conserve School offers high school juniors a one-semester opportunity to focus on the environment and conservation. The school has a residential program and is located on a 1,200-acre wilderness campus.
