UPDATE: Man reported missing found on Atena Mtn.

A law enforcement spokesperson said the man in his mid-30s was located around 11:30 am.
Officials with Hamilton County Special Tactics & Rescue Services and the Chattanooga Fire Department explained that the man and his friend were at the top of the mountain when they ran into issues with their ATVs.
