Search teams were busy early this morning in Nicholas County, searching for a man, lost in the woods.

The hunter, Bert Lejeune, got lost in the Clay Wildlife Management Area Sunday. He says he was using a GPS unit, but it wasn't working properly.

Lejeune managed to build a fire and stayed near it through the night. He says once it got light this morning, he walked until he found a road and hitched a ride back to his camp.
