UTAH COUNTY, Utah -- A 49-year-old woman who disappeared Thursday while hiking the Aspen Grove trail near Mount Timpanogos has been found.

According to officials at the scene, Consuelo Healy was found by other hikers, who then called 911.

At 9:30 p.m. Thursday Healy's husband called the Utah County Sheriff's  Office to report his wife hadn't returned from a hike she's done dozens of times.

He expected her home by 6 p.m.

Police said they found Healy's car at the Aspen Grove trailhead parking lot on the Sundance side, though her husband told them she usually hikes Timponeeke trail.

Officials also said they called off their search at 3:30 a.m., then resumed the search later Friday morning.

The Mountain Star helicopter from  Payson's Mountain View Hospital also assisted with the search.
