ALLENSPARK, Colo. (AP) - Three teenage boys who were reported missing after they failed to return from a fishing trip in Allenspark have been found safe.
Authorities say that the boys, ages 15 to 17, were staying in a cabin with a leadership group when they went fishing Tuesday evening. The boys apparently hiked down some steep terrain and couldn’t get back up in the dark.
The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office says that the boys were well prepared to spend the night outdoors and made a fire until morning.
Rescuers reached the boys Wednesday morning. Authorities launched the search due to the boys’ unfamiliarity with the area and temperatures that dipped into the 40s.
The boys were not named because of their ages. They came from Padroni, Colorado; Sidney, Nebraska; and Peetz, Colorado.
