LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Two young cousins who wandered away from a campground in the Red River Gorge area of Kentucky say they ate sticks while they were in the wilderness, according to WBNS.
The boys were found safe Friday afternoon, WBNS reported.
One boy was identified as 5-year-old Michael Esposito of Batavia, Ohio. His cousin, 7-year-old Adrian Ross, is from Indiana, State Police Trooper Joe Veeneman said.
The boys had gone to the campsite with the younger boy’s father and a grandfather of both boys, Veeneman said. The men were setting up the campsite when the boys disappeared, he told WBNS. The men and boys had gone ahead of other family members who were to join them, he said.
