LINCOLN, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s Fish and Game Department says conservation officers have come to the aid of two adults and an 11-year-old who got lost hiking in the Flume Gorge trail system.

Officers say the three left the Flume Gorge visitor’s center at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday. They ended up on the Flume Slide Trail, but lost it at about 3 p.m. They tried to find their way down until they were able to call 911 at 6:20 p.m.

Officers spoke with the hikers by phone and tried to direct them back to the trail. They eventually found them at about 9:45 p.m. not far from a rain shelter. The hikers were very cold, but uninjured.

The adult hikers were identified as 34-year-old Adam Bull and 36-year-old Dawna Jones, both from Manchester.
