A helicopter crew rescued a missing woman Friday in a hiking area where the 19-year-old college student disappeared Thursday morning.

Authorities launched a search of the hiking area northeast of Pasadena late Thursday, but found no signs of the missing woman during one of the coldest nights of the year in Southern California. The search resumed Friday morning and a helicopter crew located the woman huddled near rocks by a canyon wall.
A rescuer was lowered from a helicopter to airlifted the woman out of the canyon.
Details regarding her condition were not immediately available, but aerial video showed her walking from the helicopter and into a hospital accompanied by rescue personnel.
The Los Angeles County sheriff's and fire departments and Arcadia police were involved in the search and rescue.
