MOOSE, Wyo. (AP) - Searchers have found a Cincinnati, Ohio teen who went missing in Grand Teton National Park.

Fauna Jackson was uninjured and taken to a hospital to be checked out.

The National Park Service says Jackson changed her appearance by cutting and dying her hair. Authorities say she fled when they tried to contact her early Saturday.

Rescuers redoubled their efforts after they found her hiking boot on Friday.

The girl was found near the Snake River Overlook about 4 miles from where she was last seen.
