(Milton-AP / KSL News) -- A missing hunter is safe after spending the night in the woods.

Morgan County sheriff's deputies say 28-year old Brandon Sexton became separated from the two people he was hunting with in the area known as Deep Creek.

That's near the town of Milton in Morgan County.

Deputies say Sexton left his three-wheeler to start looking around when he lost sight of it and decided to wait until morning to find it.

Sexton was reported missing just before one this morning. Search and rescue teams were called out to look for Sexton overnight and found him safe this morning just before nine a-m.

Meanwhile, in central Utah searchers will continue looking for a 74- year old hunter from California, Rudy Lopez, in the Beaver Mountains today.

Lopez was last seen Saturday.
