Two Lost Hikers Found Search and Rescue Sunday

The searchers found the two at about 1am this morning.

They were lost near the Colorado National Monument near Ribbon Trail Head about three hours after search and rescue got the call.

The lost hikers called on their cell phones and the rescue crews were able to get their coordinates through GPS.

Park rangers say the hikers started a fire to keep warm.

We don't have any word on their conditions.
