PARK RAPIDS, Minn. (AP) — Two missing brothers are safe after being found in the woods of northern Minnesota.

The boys — ages 10 and 12 — were reported missing Tuesday afternoon from a home on Eagle Lake near Park Rapids. Hubbard County deputies responded and learned that family members could not find the boys

Sheriff Cory Aukes (AW'-kus) says about 30 people, including law enforcement and volunteers, searched the woods near where the boys were staying, and a Minnesota State Patrol helicopter assisted. A family member found the brothers at 7:15 p.m. in the woods about a half-mile from the home and 3-and-a-half hours after they were reported missing.

The sheriff says the boys are OK.
