An overnight search in the Buck/Walnut Mountain area has netted positive results for search crews in Carter County. 

James Heaton, an official with the Tennessee Forestry Division, tells News Channel 11 that a reported missing hiker from Sunday was able to return to his hiking companions today and walked out under his own power from a trail in the community. 

Several crews, including Carter County Rescue Squad, were out Sunday nights patrolling the area to help bring in the missing man. Crews were on site in the vicinity starting at 10 p.m. on Sunday.
