Missing hunter on Kauai found alive

KOKEE, Kauai (KHNL) - A hunter who was reported missing on July 19, has been found alive Monday morning.

Rescue crews found 21-year-old Cody Kimura, after he apparently fired two shots in the air.

Search and rescue had flown over him several times over the weekend but did not spot him.  Conditions in the area were overcast which hampered efforts.

Kimura says he fired his gun but the helicopter was too loud for rescuers to hear.

Monday morning, Kimura fired two shots that were heard by searchers. They went in the general direction of the gun fire and found him.

Kimura said he had run out of food and water and was living off berries.
