"I'm pleased to say that we're all witnessing a miracle today - Caroline and Leia have been found safe and sound", Honsal said before heaping praise on the more than 20 agencies who responded to help with the search effort that ultimately found the girls about 40 hours after the children entered the woods.

The county sheriff is calling it an "absolute miracle".

Two young siblings whose disappearance sparked a massive search in Northern California were found safe Sunday after missing for 44 hours, authorities said.

Caroline Carrico, 5, and Leia Carrico, 8, were last seen outside their home on Twin Trees Road in the community of Benbow on Friday evening. "This is rugged territory, this is an extreme environment". She was last seen wearing a maroon rain jacket with white horses, blue jeans and pink rain boots.

Leia Carrico, 8, left, and her sister Caroline Carrico, 5, survived two days in rugged bushland thanks to survival training from their local youth community group.

One person commented that "she looks like a seasoned outdoor gal" while another said, "those little adventurers will sure have a story to tell!"

Pakistan releases Indian pilot who was captured in disputed Kashmir region
His return is expected to avert a risky confrontation that had raised fears of a wider conflict between the two countries. The rivals have fought two of their three wars over Kashmir since their independence from British rule in 1947.

Honsal said Piercy Fire Chief Delbert Crumley and firefighter Abram Hill located the pair after following tracks in the search area about 1.4 miles south of the girls' home.

"A lot of us didn't get any sleep in the last 48 hours", Honsal said Sunday.

The searchers include National Guard members from Fresno and the U.S. Coast Guard, which provided one of its helicopters on top of a Black Hawk helicopter also being used. The girls are "ambulatory, in good spirits and not injured", according to Honsal, adding that EMTs were standing by as the girls are reunited with their family in case they need any first aid.

She said "no" but noticed soon after that the girls were gone.

On Saturday rescuers were hopeful after finding prints from the girls' rubber boots and wrappers from granola bars their mother had recently bought. "They wanted to go on a walk, mom wasn't ready to do so", Ireland said.

"As the information comes in we react to it", Fridley said.
