Missing sisters found alive in California woods

Missing sisters found alive in California woods

Sisters Caroline and Leia Carrico, ages 5 and 8, were reported missing from their home in Benbow, CA, Friday evening.

The youngsters walked several miles from their home and survived almost two full days in the forest by eating granola bars that they had brought, drinking water droplets off leaves and using the skills they learned from a local 4-H wilderness class.

The girls were last seen at their home in California's Humboldt county Friday afternoon.

Two nights passed while a 250-person-strong crew, including dog teams, assisted in the effort to find them, combing the steep terrain.

Rescuers are calling their safe return a "miracle".

"How they were out there for 44 hours is pretty unbelievable", said Sheriff William Honsal at a Sunday news conference, where the sense of relief was palpable and media attendees applauded and shouted "good job" to assembled rescuers.

"Leia wanted a little, tiny adventure, but I wanted more", Caroline said in an interview that aired on NBC's "Today" show. The tracks led rescuers to an area near Richardson Grove State Park, where when search crews shouted their names, the girls responded.

"To have a positive outcome like this is just absolutely wonderful".

The Carrico sisters, Leia, 8, and Caroline, 5, drank water off huckleberry leaves and made a fire to keep warm while lost in the woods of Northern California.

He says the girls were uninjured and "in good spirts". They were reunited with their family Sunday morning and were checked out at a medical center. "We thought hypothermia was going to start catching up to them if they weren't harmed already". "She melted on the phone, we had to hang up because she couldn't talk", Fridley told reporters.
