In Hiking


Firefighters used GPS to locate and rescue two lost hikers in the mountains of White County Sunday evening. Rescuers found the hikers around 7 p.m. several miles from where they had set out earlier in the day.

Officials say on September 25 the pair began hiking on Yonah Mountain outside of Cleveland and lost their sense of direction.
