UPDATE: Missing Skier Found Uninjured

SPOKANE, Wash. - Mt. Spokane Ski Patrol has confirmed with KHQ that 66-year-old Wayne Schuh was found this morning. Schuh walked all night and ended up at a Blanchard Creek Road residence at about 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning.  He was cold and wet, but otherwise uninjured. 

During the search, Dep. Patrick Bloomer was assisting the Ski Patrol in the hunt for Schuh Saturday evening and was injured when he fell from the ATV he was operating.  He was taken to a local hospital for treatment of what was hoped to be minor injuries.

Mt. Spokane Ski Patrol and the Sheriff's Department want to thank everyone involved for their assistance.

SPOKANE, Wash. - Public help is being sought to locate a 66-year-old Nine Mile Falls skier missing in the Mount Spokane Ski Park since about 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

Wayne Schuh called a friend about 10:20 a.m. and described the area he believed he was skiing alone.  His vehicle has been located near Lodge One, but a search of the area by Mt. Spokane Ski Patrol members failed to locate him.

Search and Rescue teams joined the search, but ceased activities Saturday night when conditions were judged too risky.  The sheriff's helicopter, Air One, has been unable to fly the area due to weather conditions.

Schuh is 5'09" tall and weighs 180 pounds.  He was wearing a celery-colored jacket, black pants and a spray-painted helmet that reads "Wayniac."

Anyone with information regarding Schuh's whereabouts should call 911 immediately.
