NORTH BEND, Wash. (AP) - Two women hikers missing since Sunday evening near North Bend have been found.

The King County sheriff’s office says the hikers were found Monday afternoon, “cold but safe.”

KOMO-TV reports (https://is.gd/0LCXuV ) the two women, identified by friends as Jennifer and Elizabeth Moran of Bothell, were reported overdue Sunday night when they did not return from their hike.

Cindi West with the King County Sheriff’s Office says the two left to hike a trail near the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, but apparently became lost.

Deputies found their car late Sunday near the Pratt River trailhead, and teams with King County Search and Rescue began looking for them at first light on Monday.



Conditions in the area were rainy overnight with low temperatures in the 40s.
