FOUR PEAKS, AZ - A scout troop, including two adults and six children ages 12 to 13, was found to be okay, after going missing Saturday night in the Four Peaks area.
The Maricopa County Sheriff Office gathered a search and rescue team on Saturday night, after the troop did not return from their camping trip Saturday afternoon.
According to MCSO, they found the troop at about 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.
The troop was about a nine hour hike away from the trailhead, according to officials.
MCSO says the troop indicated they were okay, and that they wanted to finish the hike on their own.
But after several calls of the troop not returning home Sunday afternoon, MCSO decided to rescue all of them by helicopter.
The troop was reunited with their family and friends.
