Lost girls found safe

The girls, ages 7-11, were lost in the woods behind their home on Hickory Street early Thursday evening.

Police and firefighters conducted a short search for the girls and found them safe at about 7 p.m. Authorities said the girls were easy to track because Wednesday night's rain left the ground wet.

One of the girls had a cellphone and called 911. She told her parents that she didn't call them because she was only able to call 911 on the phone.

More details on this story will be published in Friday's Tribune.
