MAINE (WOIO) - A frantic search concluded Monday in a Maine state park after a missing hiker from Stow was spotted waiving for help.

Michael Hays was last seen around 2PM Friday afternoon on a mountain peak in Baxter State Park. Hays did not sign out on a hiking register and his rental car was found in a nearby parking lot.

When rescuers spotted him, he appeared to have a leg injury and was taken to a hospital.

He's now at a Maine hospital recovering from a shattered kneecap.
