BAKERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Siblings missing overnight in rugged western North Carolina mountains have been located.
Officials said the children were located Thursday in the Roan Mountain section of national forest lands in Mitchell County on the Tennessee border. The children are from Kingsport, Tenn., and were hiking with their parents when they disappeared a day earlier.
The U.S. Forest Service said a child's shoe was found about a mile from where the brother and sister last were seen, leading searchers to the children.
