UPDATE 9;32 AM EST:
Baruch Hashem, the boys have been located. After a long and tedious search the boys are now safe. It is unclear how the boys got separated from their group during the hike. One of the boys had a cell phone even while they were lost however they could not make outgoing phone calls due to poor reception. Once they became in range, the boy called his father. The Bochurim were instructed to stay put and emergency responders are on their way to bring them back
Dancing and singing could be seen in the Stoliner Mesivta Camp after the good news was released that the Bochurim were found safe.
Earlier Updates could be found below:
A search is underway at Bear Mountain State Park in Upstate NY for two missing Yeshiva Bochurim.
The two boys from Stoliner Mesivta Camp, both 16-years-old, were on a hike on Thursday, but somehow got separated from their group.
The search which is being coordinated by Chaveirim of Rockland County and the Misaskim Organization, has gathered dozens of volunteers at Bear Mountain. The search was launched around midnight – early Friday morning.
The NY State Parks Police is on the scene as well.

As of 10:10 they were NOT found. They were able to make cellphone contact, but they were not yet located.
apparently they were not yet found, only they were able to place a call to one of their fathers after getting a cellphone signal for a brief period of time, they were told to stay put.
What i heard, not sure of the authenticity.
b”h they were found & in healthy condition
HOW DO WE PREVENT THIS FROM EVER HAPPENING AGAIN C”V
when going out on hike a leader (parent or counsler etc…) should be in front with everyone following AND ANOTHER LEADER in the final back making sure everyone is staying on track with the front leader & everyone is staying safe. EVEN IF IT IS AN OLDER BOYS CAMP anyone can get lost C”V even a mature & rich 40 year old businessman
Remember the good news of Sury Feldman 21-22 years ago? Her parent spoke about survival rules at the shabbes table.
