Lost Hikers Rescued From Red River Gorge

Search and rescue crews have reached two hikers in the Red River Gorge who went missing Sunday night.

The search unfolded in Wolfe County in the Torrent Falls area shortly after 1 a.m. Monday.

Crews finally located the two men atop a cliff in the Serenity Falls area, then spent a little more than an hour trying to get to them.

Crews reached the two, said to be a 17-year-old boy and a 28-year-old man, by 8 a.m. Monday.

They appeared to be okay.

There's no word if they had to be taken to the hospital.

The two walked away from their cabin Sunday night and didn't return before nightfall.

Once crews saw the two atop a cliff, they were thrown blankets until rescuers reached them.
