UPDATE: Missing brothers found safe
The Fortuna Police Department confirms that the missing brothers were found safe near Palmer Boulevard around 8:30 Saturday morning.
"They essentially gone down a wrong trail and got lost,” said Sgt. Aaron Starcher. “The 23 year old had a cell phone in his possession but the battery was dead, so he wasn't able to make contact with any of his family members. They tried to walk back out but when it became dark they decided to hunker down for the night and trying again in the morning,” said Sgt. Starcher.
Search crews are looking for two people in the Headwaters Forest near Fortuna.
Authorities say the two males, ages eleven and 23 years-old, went for a bike ride Friday afternoon and did not return.
A command post was established at Newburg Park.
The Humboldt County Sheriff's Department, Fortuna Fire, Fortuna PD, Rio Dell Fire and Coast Guard are all assisting in the search.
