They were found "in good spirits, not injured" and were provided with fresh warm clothes and water.

The Humboldt County Sheriff office in a statement called it a "miracle" that the girls were found safe.

Two young siblings whose disappearance sparked a massive search in Northern California were found safe Sunday after missing for 44 hours, authorities said.

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) said in a news release that 5-year-old Caroline Carrico and 8-year-old Leia Carrico were last seen at 2:30 p.m. on Friday outside of their home in Benbow, located about 70 miles south of Eureka in the northwest part of California. "This is rugged territory, this is an extreme environment". She went looking for them with neighbors and friends before calling the sheriff's office three hours later.

Leia Carrico, 8, left, and her sister Caroline Carrico, 5, survived two days in rugged bushland thanks to survival training from their local youth community group. She told them no.

"A lot of us didn't get any sleep in the last 48 hours", Honsal said Sunday. "These girls definitely have a survival story to tell".

The searchers included National Guard members from Fresno and the U.S. Coast Guard, which provided one of its helicopters on top of a Black Hawk helicopter also being used.

A fire captain and firefighter found the girls by following their bootprints, The Associated Press reported.

The distraught mother says she told the pair they couldn't go into the wooded area near their houise but soon noticed they had gone.

He said the girls were examined by paramedics and the initial assessment showed they were dehydrated and cold.

"The wrappers showed us a direction from where they started to where the wrappers ended up at", Fridley said.

Lt. Mike Fridley said at the press conference that some granola bar wrappers were found in the woods that matched the brand the girls' mother said were in the house. "She melted on the phone, we had to hang up because she couldn't talk", Fridley told reporters.
