Alert helps lead deputies to lost hikers

Date: 2018-02-27

Our Alert helicopter helped guide deputies to two hikers who’d gotten lost in the area of Spring Hammock Reserve off of Osprey Trail and the 419 in Longwood. Monday evening the women told deputies they had been out “enjoying nature” and exploring until they realized they were lost and the sun was setting. The two were able to use their cell phone to relay their location via GPS coordinates. Deputies trekked through six-inch high water and mud, until they found the women exhausted but thankful they were no longer lost.
