Bushwalkers found safe and well

BREAKING: TWO bushwalkers, missing in the Bellinger River National Park for three days have been found safe and well.

A search party located the men, aged 25 and 41, just before midday.

The pair spent six nights in rugged terrain and torrential rain since walking into the forest near Ebor on Friday night.

They were expected to reach Thora on Monday night, but the alarm was raised when they failed to arrive.

Ground crews consisting of police, S.E.S and volunteers located them at Woods Camp.

The pair were found in good health and said they "underestimated the time it would take to complete the trip".

They will now accompany search crews for a short walk to safety.
