SAGUACHE, Colo. -

A hang glider pilot from Colwich, Kansas, has been found safe after he crashed in Colorado's Sangre de Cristo mountains.

Saguache County Sheriff Mike Norris said Monday 25-year-old Kevin Suellentrop was found Sunday afternoon, but it took searchers time to find the man, who eventually walked out of the woods on his own and was treated for minor injuries.
    
Norris said Suellentrop had just crossed over a mountain when the accident occurred.
