The 49-year-old was reported missing after being last seen skiing on Wednesday on Whiteface.

When police located Filippidis they were concerned and got him medical attention, according to Ramagnano, who said it was his understanding that Filippidis was still receiving medical care.

"He wasn't able to give direct answers", he said.

"I saw guys crawling on their hands and knees digging into the snow", Geiling said.

On Tuesday, Ramagnano said that before Filippidis went missing, he was skiing with a friend who got exhausted and wanted to stop.

"Although details are limited at this time, we have been advised that he is in the care of police in Sacramento", Pegg's statement, released over Twitter, said. Asked if Filippidis has a history of mental illness, Ramagnano said he didn't know.

"We're relieved for everyone involved for Danny and his family".

Hampton added officers believe he was a "willing participant" of this journey and said that drugs or alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the incident.

That's the account Frank Ramagnano, president of the Toronto Professional Fire Fighters Association, told Canadian news reporters Tuesday, the day the lost man was found under baffling circumstances.

According to CTV News, Filippidis was skiing with one other person but when that person started to feel tired, Filippidis chose to do "one last run" by himself.

One employee at the mountain jokingly said in passing Tuesday, "Whiteface is now home to the longest ski trail in the world".

At the time of disappearance, police said that more than a metre of snow had fallen over a 24-hour period and that the storm likely made visibility poor. Lundin said the response from the Toronto fire community has been tremendous.

Deputies say Filipidis was still wearing the same ski clothes he wore when he was reported missing.

"People are going to assume what they're going to assume, but I think we have authorities in California and in New York State who will do a full search", he said, acknowledging the approximately 4,665 kilometres between the two locations.

Anyone with information can call New York State Police at 518-873-2750. "They'll do a comprehensive investigation".

Numerous agencies, including State Police, State Department of Environmental Conservation forest rangers, the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services and ORDA took part in the five-and-a-half-day search.

Ramagnano said that more than 100 firefighters with Toronto Fire Services traveled to Wilmington to help find their comrade. "To see the pain in their eyes - I'm glad that they have (Danny) back", he said.

"But we're all happy this came to a positive conclusion - that he was found alive and well".

His wife waited at Whiteface for him to be found, Toronto Fire Chief Matthew Pegg said Friday in an TV interview with Toronto's CityNews.

"We are all very relieved to know he is safe, following what has been an exhausted search operation".

He went on to thank those who aided in the search.
