MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Several hikers from Kentucky who were stranded overnight in a West Virginia have been rescued.

The three hikers were rescued Monday in Coopers Rock State Forest after they trekked up to a river lookout. A member of the group alerted a park ranger after she said her friends had been gone for too long.

The group has been stranded since Sunday night.

Rescue boats took the hikers to a marina.
