A 62-year-old kayaker who drifted away from her group was missing overnight on the Cloquet River until she was found early Sunday morning.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's office says Susan Rae Vaughn of Two Harbors suffered from a "slight" case of hypothermia, dehydration and had lots of bug bites when she was found around 5:30 a.m., the Star Tribune reports.

Vaughn's group set out on Saturday near Bear Lake Trail in Ault Township. She was reported missing later after getting separated.

Authorities searched the lake and found her kayak about three miles downstream, the Duluth News Tribune reports.

Vaughn was then found during a land search and taken to the hospital for treatment.

Authorities remind those on the lakes to stay together and prepare for weather changes, FOX 9 reports.
