Californian children return safely after 44 hours of disappearance

Two girls missing from Benbow in Humboldt County

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office is searching for two young girls who went missing on Friday.

Though the girls were dehydrated and cold, they were uninjured and "in good spirits", Honsal said.

The girls were unharmed when discovered in a distressed territory, and he attributed their comeback in part to their survival training they had received with their local 4-H club.

The Humboldt County Sheriff office in a statement called it a "miracle" that the girls were found safe.

Leia and Caroline Carrico, 8 and 5, were last seen Friday afternoon by their home in the northern community of Benbow before they wandered away, The Associated Press reported.

Two siblings, Leia and Caroline Carrico, aged 8 and 5 respectively were found safe on Sunday after being declared missing for 44 hours.

He said Crumley and Hill were following tracks in their assigned search area when the came upon the little girls. "The mother said, 'No.' And then in the course of getting things ready and stuff, she noticed they were missing around 3 o'clock", Honsal said. On Saturday, crews from Napa County and Marin County sheriff's offices joined the hunt for the girls amid occasional rain.

"To have a positive outcome like this is just absolutely incredible", he added, "and I can say it's nothing other than a miracle".

"A lot of us didn't get any sleep in the last 48 hours", Honsal said Sunday. "To have this kind of news come out is just awesome", said Estelle Fennell, the supervisor for Humboldt County's 2nd district.

Officials said they tapped the "best investigators" in the state to lend their time to the search.

The searchers include National Guard members from Fresno and the U.S. Coast Guard, which provided one of its helicopters on top of a Black Hawk helicopter also being used.

The girls' mum Misty Carrico said after their rescue: "You are in so much trouble".

"So the wrappers showed us a direction from where they started to where the wrappers ended", Fridley said.

"She melted on the phone".
