Missing Bixby hiker found alive in state park

BRAGGS, Okla. (AP) — The search is over for a missing 37-year-old Bixby man who disappeared after going hiking in Greenleaf State Park over the weekend.  Jacob Stephens was found alive and well this afternoon, after a helicopter spotted him on the east side of the lake in the park. He not contacted his family since he left to go hiking Saturday morning in the Muskogee County park. Family members told police that Stephens is diabetic and not an experienced hiker. That caused concern and prompted a search. Again, Stephens was located this afternoon alive and okay.
