Missing Hikers Walk Out Safely

10/15/12 6:06AM

There's a happy ending for four University of Vermont students reported missing on Camels Hump over the weekend.

The students were reported missing Sunday afternoon, a day after they had headed to the mountain for an overnight excursion.

UVM Students Sophie Earll, Blake Winkler, Ryan Duffy and Shawn Wasson were supposed to meet up Saturday with several other students who had hiked to Montclair Glen Lodge earlier that day.

They were reported missing Sunday by members of the group they were supposed to meet.

As state police and members of Waterbury Backcountry Rescue were preparing late yesterday afternoon to launch a search, the four walked off the mountain.

There were no injuries.
