COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A teenager who sparked a large search near Harbison State Forest was found hours later on Department of Corrections property naked and on drugs, a State Forestry Commission official said.

According to Scott Hawkins, four teenagers went hiking in the forest earlier Sunday afternoon. When two of them got separated from the group sometime around 5 p.m., a call was placed to emergency officials.

Searchers first located one of the missing hikers. That teen was transported to an area hospital.

Searchers found the other missing 18-year-old male's clothes in the Broad River.

Hours later, he was located near the Broad River Correctional Institution high on LSD and naked, according to Hawkins.

Hawkins said all four teens had been doing drugs. He did not know the ages or gender of the others involved.

Charges are pending against the male teen, Hawkins said. He said the search was a huge expense for taxpayers because all of the resources used.

Columbia firefighters, Columbia police officers, Department of Natural Resources officers and State Forestry Commission officials helped with the search. SLED also utilized its helicopter.
