Lost Boys Found
Authorities say three boys searching for adventure and old gold mines wandered away from their camp along the Rogue River and were lost six hours.
The Josephine County sheriff's office says search and rescue personnel turned out Sunday to look for the boys, ages 5, 8 and 13.
A command post was set up, and dog teams deployed. A couple that
pitched in to help in the search soon found the three boys brought
The boys were described as "wet, muddy, scratched, cold and
hungry" - but otherwise OK.
Their families had gone camping the night before and the boys
wandered off just as the parents were breaking camp.
