Mountain rescue crews located two lost hikers Saturday night near West Lost Creek Drive and West Calderwood Way, fire officials said.

Authorities said two 17-year-olds, a girl and boy, somehow got stuck on a hill so they called 911. The Phoenix Fire Department used a helicopter to search for the couple, who got lost shortly after 6 p.m. 

Rescue crews are walking the teens down the mountain.
