Two hunters from San Bruno who were reported missing in the Mendocino National Forest have been located, the Glenn County Sheriff's Office said.
KNVN TV reported earlier today that a search was under way for Luis Gerardo Magallon and Deniesse Alejandra Rivera-Prado, both 24, who had been missing since around midnight.
Glenn County Sheriff Larry Jones said a search and rescue team, comprised of Glenn County sheriff's officers and Mendicino County authorities, was dispatched this morning. The pair were found in good condition at about 1 p.m. high up in the forest around Plaskett Meadows by a U.S. Forest Serive officer, Jones said.
Both were reportedly dressed well for lower temperatures, and they had a bottle of water, candy bars and 20 rounds of ammo for a hunting rifle with them.
Jones said the search and rescue team is now on its way to bring the pair to safety.
