Family members say the 67-year old was found Thursday dehydrated and tired but otherwise okay after spending two nights in the bush, avoiding bears and eating berries. Wayne was taken to Wrinch Memorial Hospital in Hazelton for observation.

“He survived that long and is still tough as nails,” wrote Stephanie Morrison, Wayne’s daughter, on Facebook.
