(LYONS, Ore) - Three teens who went out on a hiking trip Saturday in the Opal Creek Wilderness area are now safe and back with family members.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue Team tells Salem-News.com that the three boys decided it was too dark out and decided to stay the night and walkout in the morning light. All three are healthy and uninjured.

17-year-old Bodie Teeple, 16-year-old Alex Ruiz, and 17-year-old Allen Carrillo-Mejia, went hiking Saturday around noon, and deputies were told by family that the trio intended on a lengthy hike into the wilderness area.

When they failed to show up late into the night Saturday, that's when family members contacted police.

The Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue Teams actively worked in the area since midnight Saturday using jeep patrol, posse and K-9 search teams.
