SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. -- Two hikers who were lost in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness near Snoqualmie Pass were rescued Tuesday, 17 miles from the trailhead.

King County sheriff's Sgt. Cindi West says the sheriff's helicopter picked up 18-year-old Ricardo Perez of Edmonds and 19-year-old Brian Chim of Mukilteo Tuesday morning. They appear to be in good condition. They were flown to the Bandera Air Field at North Bend.

Searchers pinged the men s cell phones before they lost service. Rescuers spotted them shaking the brush.

The two failed to return Sunday from a day hike and were reported missing by their parents.
