BEDFORD, Ind. (WDRB) -- An Indiana hunter who had been missing for two days is found thanks to social media.

Frank Knight, 63, of Tell City, was found early Saturday morning in the Hoosier National Forest.

He was last seen Wednesday after he told a friend he was going deer hunting in the area.

Officials say a tip came in about where Knight might be after police posted on social media about his disappearance.

The tip lead them to his truck, and then the missing hunter.

Knight had hypothermia and was taken to the hospital.
