Smart Phones Help Locate Lost Hikers

Technology we often take for granted helped a couple & two children find their way back to civilization in Door County Monday. The grandparents & children became lost taking a hike around 12:30PM on Ridges Road, near Toft Point, in the Town of Baileys Harbor. The group lost its bearings when they went off the road near the water. After calling 9-1-1, a smart phone was used to provide coordinates for their location & 20 volunteers responded. In about 45 minutes, the grandparents & children were found, none the worse for wear.
