GRANITE — An Idaho woman who was reported missing Saturday morning was rescued in the Blue Mountains Saturday evening after her pickup truck was stuck in snow on an unmaintained forest road between Ukiah and Granite.

Ruby Pike, 52, of Star, was not hurt, according to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.

Two Grant County deputies found Pike in her truck about 7:58 p.m. Saturday along Forest Road 52, the Blue Mountain Scenic Byway, about 35 miles southeast of Ukiah.

Pike was checked by an ambulance crew at Ukiah and then reunited with family members who reported Saturday morning that she was overdue on a trip from Pendleton to Boise.
