(SEASIDE, Ore.) - The Coast Guard assisted in locating and hoisting two boys to safety at Seaside Monday evening. Two two boys were 13-years old who became lost while hiking in a forest.

A spokesman from Coast Guard Group Astoria says they received a phone call from the Seaside Police Department at 5:47 PM that two 13-year-old boys had gotten lost in the woods behind the Seaside Elementary School in Seaside.

The boys were able to contact local authorities via cell phone but were unsure as to their location in the woods.

The Coast Guard diverted an HH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew that had been in the area conducting training to the scene. Ground parties from the local police and fire departments communicated with the lost boys via cell phone and were able to pass information to the helicopter crew.

The spokesman says the Coast Guard located the two boys, safely hoisted them into the aircraft and transported them to a local airfield where their parents, police and fire officials were waiting.

Both boys were found unharmed.
