Lost Hikers Found By Rescue Group

Searchers found two lost hikers unharmed near Goose Lake in Boulder County on Monday.

Rocky Mountain Rescue Group volunteers found the men northwest of Nederland at about 8:40 a.m., the Boulder County Sheriff's Office reported. The search was launched after the two failed to return as planned Sunday evening.

Patrick Nelson, 21, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Sean Klomparens, 20, of Rockville, Md., said they'd strayed from their planned route on the Arapahoe Peak Trail from Buckingham Campground in the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area.
