article imageSisters who went missing in Wyoming wilderness found

By Owen Weldon     Jul 9, 2015 in Travel
Three sisters who went on a camping trip outside of Jackson, Wyoming, ended up going missing for days, but they were safely found.
The sisters, Megan (25), Erin (22) and Kelsi Andrew-Sharer, (16) were found on Thursday by a search team that spotted them via helicopter. They left 10 days ago to go to Teton County, where they planned to do some hiking and camping.
The trio were found in a remote part of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, but they were cold, hungry, but healthy, according to search and rescue officials.
The search for the sisters began on Tuesday, after they didn't return from their trip. However, it wasn't clear how long they were planning to be in the wilderness for.
The area they were found in has mountains that are more than 11,000 feet high, and this includes the Antoinette Peak. The sisters are experience trekkers and they were prepared for the trip. The sisters had the right clothing and all the appropriate gear for their trip.
An official said that it is easy for people to get off course and go the wrong way, and this goes for experienced hikers too.
The website dedicated to helping find the girls thanked friends and family. It also said the girls were on their way to be reunited with their family.
