UPDATED 12.30PM: The source of an emergency locator beacon which went off in the Nelson Lakes National Park this morning has been found.

The Westpac Rescue helicopter tracked the distress signal to a woman nursing a sprained ankle at Angelus Hut.

Two women are registered to the beacon, and it's not clear where the other one is.
