A Siberian doctor who treated poisoned Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny last year reappeared on Monday after being reported missing while on a hunting trip, Russian news agencies cited the regional government as saying.

A search was launched in the forests of the Omsk region, about 2,200 kilometres east of Moscow, after physician Alexander Murakhovsk­y left a forest hunting base in an all-terrain vehicle on Friday.

Murakhovsk­y exited the forest himself and made contact with residents of the village of Basly, RIA news agency quoted the Omsk regional government as saying.

He was in “normal condition” though was being examined at Bolsheukov­sky District Hospital as a precaution, RIA cited the authoritie­s as saying.

Murakhovsk­y was head doctor at the hospital in the Siberian city of Omsk that treated Navalny, President Vladimir Putin's most prominent critic, after he collapsed on a flight last year.
