Two young California sisters found alive

Searchers making plans this morning

A massive search is underway in Humboldt county for two young sisters who wandered away from their home. At a press conference this morning, Humboldt County Sheriff Sgt. Kerry Ireland said the girls asked their mom to go for a walk around 2:30 p.m. She was last seen wearing a dark grey hooded long sleeve shirt and purple rain boots. "The mother said, 'No.' And then in the course of getting things ready and stuff, she noticed they were missing around 3 o'clock", Honsal said. They used helicopters and tracking dogs.

The sheriff's office said Saturday they were following a trail of granola bar wrappers found in the woods after the girls' mother confirmed she'd recently bought the same brand.

Honsal described the search area as vast, rugged and rural and the conditions as cold and sporadically rainy.

The HCSO also announced in a tweet that the search area was closed to unauthorized aircraft including drones.

The search extended into Sunday with officers going door to door and inspecting all vehicles going in and out of the sprawling area where the search was centered, about 280 miles north of San Francisco.

Rescuers were hopeful about finding the girls Saturday after they came across prints from the girls' rubber boots and wrappers from the granola bars, Lt. Mike Fridley said.

"We have a lot of clues as to the direction they went".

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

"It's a chess game", he said, of trying to figure out where the girls are at.

"All available resources are being utilized by searching personnel", the sheriff's office said. She said that at this point people should stay clear of the area unless they have permission from the Sheriff's Office. "Through the collaborated efforts of all the involved agencies, we are working to resolve this incident as quickly and safely as possible". "We don't know. We're looking at all the different contingencies that could be out there".
