Fire and rescue crews were at Lewis and Clark Park Monday night just north of Council Bluffs to locate a lost hiker. 

Authorities say a 27-year-old man suffered a medical episode while he was lost on the trials. A drone was used by Council Bluffs Fire officials and he was located after about an hour. Rope rescue teams were used to bring the man up from a ravine. 

He is being treated at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital.
