Medical personnel are checking the two men for exposure to the elements. They were located shortly before 1:00 pm Monday.

The two had been missing since Sunday evening when family members became concerned that they had not returned and called authorities.

Police located their truck this morning at a boat ramp near Cedar Creek in Franklin County.

The two men are reportedly very hungry and glad someone eventually came looking for them.
