Searchers find boys alive in Kentucky’s Red River Gorge area

Authorities say two young cousins missing for nearly a day have been found alive in the rugged Red River Gorge area of Kentucky.
    
More than 100 searchers combed the wooded, ravine-filled area looking for the boys, ages 5 and 7.
    
State Police Trooper Joe Veeneman said Friday the boys were found about a mile from their campsite.
    
The trooper didn’t have details on their condition.
    
They disappeared Thursday evening from Koomer Ridge campground in the popular recreation area in eastern Kentucky.
    
Veeneman says the boys had gone to the campsite with one boy’s father and a grandfather of both boys. He says the men were setting up the campsite when the boys disappeared.
    
Red River Gorge is a heavily wooded, rocky destination popular with hikers, campers and rock climbers.
