Missing Hikers From Lexington Rescued

With the help of a chopper and several ground crews, missing father and daughter Kevin and Rebecca Hall were rescued from the woods Sunday morning.

Fran Hall called police Saturday night after her husband and daughter did not return from their hike in Wolfe County. She says she was worried about them, until she received a text message from Rebecca Sunday morning saying they had gotten lost and spent the night on top of a mountain.

A search and rescue team consisting of EMS and police departments from several neighboring counties trekked wooded terrain for hours, until they were able to locate the father and daughter. Both were then able to walk out safely.

Neither one suffered any injuries and Fran says her family will not be returning to the area anytime soon.
