A dramatic night of searching for two missing hikers ended after midnight when both were found.
Sources tell YWN that the two boys were part of a group that visited the “Katrina Falls Hiking Trails” in the town of Rock Hill in Sullivan County.
The search prompted a massive response from numerous Fire Departments, NY Forest Rangers, NY State Police, Sullivan County Sheriff Department and dozens of Catskills Hatzolah Volunteers. A NY State Police Chopper was brought is to search from overhead using infrared and night-vision technology.
Initial responding emergency personnel located the boys clothing at the bank of the Neversink River, giving reason to believe that the boys had entered the water.
Eventually, at around 12:15AM, the two boys were located on a rock in middle of the river. A rescue was underway to have them safely taken to the shore.
YWN has been informed that the names for Tehillim of the two boys missing on a hiking trail in the Catskills is:
– Meir Simcha Elaksander ben Chana Hinda
– Yerucham Dov ben Ita Miriam
