FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Two boys missing in rugged forest north of Rocky Mountain National Park were found alive and well.

Larimer County officials say the boys, ages 11 and 12, were separated from their group while hunting small game. They did not require any medical attention when found Sunday and were being reunited with their hunting party from the local area.

The boys were armed with .22-caliber rifles and had backpacks with survival gear, water and food. Authorities were contacted Sunday morning.

Officials said family members assisted with the search.

Authorities said several agencies and an aircraft helped in the search for the boys.
