Eight Boy Scouts and their leaders from the Occoneechee Council in North Carolina who got lost while camping have been found.
The group had gotten off a trail and decided to set up camp for another night so they could wait for daylight rather than trying to walk out in the dark.
Search and rescue crews and firefighters scoured a five-square-mile area overnight. A fresh search team of 15 to 30 people with tracking dogs went out after dawn on Monday to continue the search in the heavily wooded area.
A person in the lost group was finally able to get cell phone service Monday morning to call for help.
Donna Johnston of the Boy Scouts’ Occoneechee Council said that everyone “is fine,” and they are now “out of the woods.”
