Found. Saw him talking with the search team in the basin. Didn't seem to be injured either which is good news.

From Facebook:Big Bend National Park13 hrs · UPDATE: Lost hiker has been found! Mr. Lopez spent 2 unplanned nights in the backcountry where he took a wrong turn and then lost the trail after intense thunderstorms turned the path into a flowing creek. Eventually he found his way back to his route and searchers located him while hiking out. 13 search personnel and our park plane were assisted in this operation by a Customs & Border Protection air and marine division helicopter. We thank everyone who helped with the search and provide information and are overjoyed to close this incident with a happy ending!
