An Oct. 16 RCMP helicopter search located four overdue hunters from God’s River, including a 16-year-old and a 12-year-old.

The hunters were dropped off in the area Oct. 8 and were scheduled to be picked up Oct. 11, but poor weather prevented a chartered float plane from landing on the lake.

The hunters were reported missing around 7 p.m. Oct. 15 .
