TUCSON, Ariz. -- Authorities say a Michigan man reported missing on a sightseeing hike in southern Arizona's Catalina Mountains has been found and is in good condition.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say 31-year-old Jason Bruscha was airlifted Monday afternoon to a Catalina State Park command center and then taken to a hospital by ambulance.

They say Bruscha was dehydrated and had several abrasions on his knees.

He was visiting relatives in Oro Valley near Tucson and was last seen Sunday morning at his uncle's home.

Bruscha told his uncle he going sightseeing when he left the home at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, but relatives called authorities when he hadn't returned by 9 p.m.

Oro Valley police found Bruscha's rental car at the state park and search and rescue crews began looking for him.
