‘Absolute miracle:’ Missing California sisters found

Share

A firefighter kneels down and talks to one of the sisters who were found alive 44 hours after they went missing in the rugged wilderness.

More than 20 agencies were on scene this morning to search for Leia and Caroline Carrico, 8 and 5, respectively, who were believed to have wandered off into a deeply wooded area of forest adjacent to their house on the 3300 block of Twin Trees Road between 2:30 and 3 p.m. Friday. "How they were out there for 44 hours is pretty awesome". She said no and then couldn't find them, according to the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office.

Honsal noted that the girls had spent the last two days in "rugged territory", and speculated that outdoor survival training they received from their 4-H club could have possibly played a part in their safe recovery.

A photo of one of the girls posted by the sheriff's office and already being widely shared on social media shows her wearing pink rubber boots, dirty jeans, a long pink shirt and a woolen cap.

HCSO reports they are looking at all contingencies in this situation, to locate Caroline and Leia in a timely manner.

Boot prints discovered early Sunday morning by two members of the Piercy Volunteer Fire Department led the rescue team to Leia, 8, and Caroline Carrico, 5, huddled together under a bush, 1.4 miles away from their residence. The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who sees the pair to call 911 immediately, and requesting that people stay clear of the search area unless given permission by the law enforcement.

Honsal said first responders provided them with fresh warm clothes and water.

"A lot of us didn't get any sleep the last 48 hours or so", Sheriff Honsal said.

The girls were found safe, sound, ambulatory and in good spirits, he said, 44 hours after they had first been reported missing. "They wanted to go on a walk, mom wasn't ready to do so", Ireland said.

"So the wrappers showed us a direction from where they started to where the wrappers ended at".

She said "no" but noticed soon after that the girls were gone.
