(Newser) – A family of three that went missing while picking mushrooms on the Oregon coast has been found after an exhaustive six-day search, reports the Oregonian. Daniel and Belinda Conne, both 47, and their 25-year-old son, Michael, were spotted by a helicopter yesterday and airlifted out of a ravine with minor injuries including dehydration and frostbite. The Connes had been staying at a campsite and working odd jobs when they went missing Sunday with their dog. Authorities say they took shelter in a hollowed-out tree, but were unable to attract helicopters' attention until yesterday. (Read more mushrooms stories.)
