LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, California — Four hikers missing overnight in the Angeles National Forest north of Los Angeles have been found and they're being hoisted out by helicopter.

KNBC-TV reports that the four were found safe and uninjured at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday and showed they were being airlifted out one at a time by an LA County sheriff's helicopter.

KNX-AM reports that the search began a few hours earlier after an especially frigid night in the area when the hikers ranging in ages from 18 to 61 failed to return home from a Monday hike.

KNBC says the group consists of three men and one woman who were dressed for the cold.

The group was reported missing around midnight and its vehicle was found at off the Angeles Crest Highway near La Canada Flintridge.
