Officials say emergency responders helped a church youth group and its chaperones reunite after a 911 call sent authorities to search a North Carolina river.
Montgomery County spokeswoman Laura Morton said the group from
Stanly County was canoeing in the Uwharrie River on Thursday when
they were separated and called 911. Officials said authorities from
neighboring counties and a Highway Patrol helicopter assisted in
Morton said the group consisted of six adults and 24 children, ages 10 to 12, and that everyone was found with no injuries. She wasn't sure how the group got separated or how far apart they were.
The group was near the Uwharrie National Forest.
