(KSL News) -- A Texas teenager walked to safety tonight at Powder Mountain Ski Resort.

His parents hadn't seen their 15-year-old son since 2:00 this afternoon. He had skied into the Davenport Canyon area looking for fresh powder and got lost.

Lt. Jeff Malin, Weber County Sheriff's Dept.: "From there he started on foot hiking out of there so he walked a long ways in the dark to get back to where he was. Luckily he made it back."

Three snowmobile crews and an Air-Med helicopter had been searching for the young man.
