Lost kids found in woods

Vernon Search and Rescue crews and North Westside Fire Rescue members spent New Year's Eve looking for two missing children.

Unconfirmed reader reports indicate the children, aged five and seven, went missing from a bonfire about 5 p.m. in the area of Crown Crescent in West Shore Estates.

A police dog was brought in to look for the children, but couldn't find a scent.

They were eventually located by a search and rescue snowmobile team about 8 p.m., deep in the woods.

Both appeared to be extremely cold, but were OK. They were handed over to waiting ambulance paramedics to be checked out.
