Search and rescue teams have found a woman who had failed to return from a day walk in Mt Richmond Forest Park.

Police say the 31-year-old woman set out the Hackett Track in the park, east of Nelson, but after four hours she became lost and used her cellphone to call friends.

Two search teams were sent into the area about 11pm yesterday.

Police say they found the woman on a ridge at 3.30am today and walked her out of the area.
