APTOS - A missing mountain biker was found about 11 a.m. Sunday, after spending a cold night in Nisene Marks State Park, the Sheriff's Office said.

The 48-year-old man was reported missing Saturday evening after he became separated from a partner he had been riding with, Lt. Bob Pursley said.

He was found after a search by the Santa Cruz County Search and Rescue Team, which is run by the Sheriff's Office, plus teams from San Mateo and Monterey counties and State Parks rangers, he said. The man was "medically cleared," Pursley said.
