Two Scottsdale hikers are OK after they were stranded Saturday night without flashlights in West Fork Canyon, the Coconino County Sheriff's Office said.
Sedona 911 fire dispatchers received a cell phone call from one of the hikers and were able to determine the coordinates for the call.
A Coconino County sheriff's deputy, a search and rescue coordinator and a volunteer met at the West Fork Trailhead and hiked about two miles to the victims' location.
Rescuers reached the victims at about 11:10 p.m. and provided each with a flashlight.The rescuers then accompanied the two hikers, ages 17 and 20, back to the trailhead.
