Lost and found

Two West Virginia children missing in George Washington National Forest spent Sunday night huddled beneath leaves in a creek bed worrying about “night beasts” but “snuggled up” for warmth.

They were found still walking that creek bed Monday afternoon, almost 22 hours after going missing, moving deeper into the woods and carrying a pocket full of “wooly worms,” a spider sack and a leaf with a “neat” spore on it.

The voices of two children in the George Washington National Forest sounded like birds to Scott Reese.

“In the moments of quiet I would yell at the top of my lungs in one direction and my son in the other,” the 44-year-old pastor of Goshen Baptist and Miller Memorial churches said. “We went like that for three hours. We finally heard what we thought might be a voice. It sounded like a bird.”
