A hiker who had been missing in the Superstition Mountains has been found.

Robin Byrd, 51, was taken to a local hospital early Thursday morning. The search and rescue team from Pinal County Sheriff's Office found Byrd, missing since Tuesday afternoon, on the Bluff Springs Trail.

She is expected to recover.

This is not the first time Byrd has gotten lost in the Superstitions. In December, she required another search effort. She told authorities she'd been looking for the legendary Lost Dutchman's gold mine.
