Update: The family is From South Whitehall not Upper Macungie.
A South Whitehall family is safe and sound today after two boys and their grandfather were lost on Hawk Mountain for most the hot and humid day, according to The Associated Press.
Authorities said the 74-year-old man and boys, both younger than 10, went for a three-hour hike in the morning. The search began at about 6:30 p.m. when they didn’t check in.
The boys’ mother, Elizabeth Christman, of Tamarack Drive in South Whitehall, told The-Express-Times, 'I can't explain how thankful I feel that I can embrace them and that I can look at them right now.'
She and her husband, Scott, waited at the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Kempton while police and search dogs scoured the mountain.
They worried that her father, the boys’ grandfather, might have gotten heat stroke and fell. The boys' grandfather, Robert Durn, is from Allentown.
State police found the trio in good condition at 11:45 p.m. Wednesday.
