2 young California sisters missing since Friday, found after frantic search

Searchers making plans this morning

A massive search is underway in Humboldt county for two young sisters who wandered away from their home.

Fridley said he was the one who got to call the girls' mother and tell them her daughters were alive. He said the girls went missing in the 300 block of Twin Trees Road.

"I am pleased to report that we all are witnessing a miracle today".

A fire chief and firefighter from a local volunteer department found Leia and Caroline Carrico in a wooded area about 1½ miles (2.3 kilometers) from their home in the small community of Benbow, where they had last been seen Friday afternoon, Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal said.

Honsal said the sisters were discovered about 10:30 a.m. local time by Piercy, California, Fire Chief Delbert Crumley and firefighter Abram Hill, who were among almost 200 rescuers from across the state who joined the search.

He says the girls were uninjured and "in good spirts".

In response to the incident, the university expressed "unwavering" commitment to "freedom of expression and perspective". The executive order, Trump said , would "require colleges to support free speech if they want federal research" money.

The public is advised to please avoid the area while search teams are working unless given permission by the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office.

He said the girls were being brought to paramedics to be examined and reunited with their parents. "We could not have had a better outcome than we've had this morning", Honsal said. The girls were found about 1.4 miles from their residence, where they were last seen at about 2:30 p.m. Friday, close to Richardson Grove State Park. She went looking for them with neighbors and friends before calling the sheriff's office three hours later.

Law enforcement asked the public not to join the search efforts both because of the rugged terrain and because they're anxious volunteers could damage evidence left by the girls, like more boot prints.

On Saturday rescuers were hopeful after finding prints from the girls' rubber boots and wrappers from granola bars their mother had recently bought.

There are also a reported four K-9 units searching intermittently for the girls.
