Quebec provincial police have found the 83-year-old woman who went missing in a densely wooded area of the upper Laurentians yesterday afternoon.
The woman was located by a helicopter after spending the night outside, and was in the early stages of hypothermia, according to police.
The woman has been taken to Mont-Laurier Hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
Police say the woman was lost after berry picking with her family in an isolated forest near Mont St-Michel, about 30 kilometres north of Mont Laurier.
"She told the person that was with [her] that she was going back to the cottage. The people …went back to the cottage. She wasn't there," said Sûreté du Québec spokesman Sgt. Marc Tessier.
Police said the woman was reported missing at around 2 p.m. Sunday.
Rescue teams searched for the woman using a helicopter, all-terrain vehicles and a police canine unit.
Tessier said officers worked through the night, but the search was complicated by a thunderstorm early this morning.
