3 'LOST' HIKERS RETURN SAFELY TO PROVO

An unidentified Orem man and his two sons walked off "Y" Mountain safely Sunday afternoon shortly after the Provo Police mountain rescue team had been called out.

According to a Provo dispatcher, the three were hiking Saturday evening and it became dark before they could hike back down the mountain. The three decided that rather than hike in the darkness they would spend the night on the mountain.An attempt-to-locate bulletin was issued Saturday night and when police found the man's car parked in a Brigham Young University parking lot Sunday they assumed he and his sons were on the mountain. The three hikers suffered no injuries.
