Missing Girls in Humboldt County California

Sheriff Billy Honsal is at the command post in Southern Humboldt

But on Sunday evening, they were found about a mile from their home.

Humboldt County Sheriff's Office then conducted a multi-agency search involving surrounding search and rescue crews, fire crews, California Highway Patrol and the U.S. Coast Guard.

"To have a positive outcome like this is just absolutely incredible", he added, "and I can say it's nothing other than a miracle".

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office is searching for two young girls who went missing on Friday.

Eight-year-old Leia Carrico and 5-year-old Caroline Carrico were last seen around 2:30 p.m. outside their home in Benbow, a small community about 200 miles (320 kilometers) northwest of Sacramento.




The girls were "safe and sound" and uninjured, thanks in part to survival training they learned as part of their local youth leadership group, similar to Guides or Scouts, called the 4-H club. "These girls definitely have a survival story to tell".

Honsal said at a previous press conference that the girl's mother first noticed they were missing around 3 p.m. Friday, after they asked her if they could go for a walk and she said no. She went looking for them with neighbors and friends before calling the sheriff's office three hours later. She said there are trained trackers in the area.

PREVIOUSLY: The two young sisters missing since Friday afternoon in the woods near Benbow have been found alive after more than 44 hours alone in the forest, according to a text message from their mother to local reporter Kym Kemp.

There are also a reported four K-9 units searching intermittently for the girls. She was last seen wearing a maroon rain jacket with white horses, blue jeans and pink boots. "How they were out there for 44 hours is pretty awesome".

"So the wrappers showed us a direction from where they started to where the wrappers ended", Fridley said. We have a photographer on the way to the search effort and we'll be updating from the scene throughout the day.
