  • Two girls missing from Benbow in Humboldt County

They found the girls on Sunday morning, 1.4 miles (2.3km) from where they had set off, just hours before a rain storm was due to hit.

Authorities say two young sisters missing from their Northern California home for since Friday have been found alive.

Leia and Caroline Carrico, 8 and 5, were last seen Friday afternoon by their home in the northern community of Benbow before they wandered away, The Associated Press reported. Authorities said the girls were believed to have walked off into the wooded area.

Caroline is 3 feet 6 inches tall, 40 pounds with hazel eyes and blonde hair with blue streaks.

A photo released by the sheriff's department showed Caroline, dressed in a pink sweater and matching rain boots, speaking with a firefighter shortly after she and her big sister were found.

Leia Carrico was described as "a white female, 4 feet 2 inches tall, 85 pounds, with hazel eyes and blonde hair, with a large freckle on her left cheek".

They were "in good spirits", Humboldt Country Sheriff William Honsal said, adding their discovery was a "miracle". She was last seen in a dark gray hooded shirt and purple boots.

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.

The sheriff appealed to the public not to "self-deploy in these rural areas" but instead contact one of the search teams to volunteer.

He said Crumley and Hill were following tracks in their assigned search area when the came upon the little girls.

Lieutenant Mike Fridley was in charge of the search operation and said he was the one to break the news to the girls' mother. "They wanted to go on a walk, mom wasn't ready to do so", Ireland said.

"These girls have defiantly a survival story to tell and we're definitely looking forward to hear it from them", he said.

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