Diabetic Hiker Rescued In Search for Missing Man

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Searchers looking for a former Marine who went missing last year in the Bob Marshall Wilderness rescued a diabetic hiker from Michigan who was having a medical emergency.

The Independent Record reports search crews came across Kevin Latshaw on Tuesday after his insulin pump had broken.

Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton says there was no way Latshaw, who was hiking with his father, could have made it out on his own.

Medics with the search team cared for Latshaw until a Montana Army National Guard helicopter flew him to Helena, where he was transported to a hospital. His condition was not immediately clear on Wednesday morning.

The search crews were looking for Noah Pippin, a former Marine who was last seen in September 2010 near Salt Mountain.
