HENRYVILLE — Authorities say two lost hikers have been found nearly 4 miles into a southern Indiana state forest.

Indiana Conservation Officers say the pair became disoriented soon after starting their hike Monday evening near Deam Lake in the Clark State Forest.

Officers drove ATVs about 2 miles into the forest but had to hike rest of the way to the pair because of treacherous terrain. Conservation officers say the 25-year-old man and 20-year-old woman weren’t hurt but weren’t familiar with the trail system in the forest near the Clark County town of Henryville.
