Rumney couple helped off trail in ThorntonJanuary 30. 2018 12:29PM
Rose Medeiros, 59 and her husband, Jorge, had set out about 1:30 p.m., intending to hike a 1.8 mile loop that would end where it had started, according to a Fish and Game department release. Four hours later, they realized they hadn't reached their destination and called 911.
Conservation officers used GPS coordinates to find them on the Smart Brook Trail about 4 miles from where they started.
The couple was helped back to the trailhead, arriving at about 9 p.m, officials said.
