3 sisters missing on Wyoming camping trip found alive and well

Three Wisconsin sisters who went missing on a camping trip in the Wyoming wilderness were found “tired, cold and hungry” but healthy after searchers rescued them on Thursday. A helicopter crew spotted the sisters — 16, 22 and 25 years old — about seven miles from where their car was parked in in Gros Ventre, a part of the Bridger-Teton National Forest. The three were reported missing on Tuesday when they didn’t meet their mother in Chicago as planned, and their vehicle was found on Wednesday. On Thursday, a guide gave the searchers coordinates on where he had seen a person walking in an area without trails, and with this new focal point a helicopter crew managed to quickly locate the three sisters. Officials have yet to reveal details on why or how they got lost, but the trio was credited with being prepared for an “unexpected situation,” as they had packed enough food for five days, along with tents and sleeping bags.
