BURNSVILLE, N.C. - Two young brothers reported missing in western North Carolina have been found, after spending a cold night in the mountains.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Monday that the two boys, ages 6 and 8, went missing Saturday evening from their grandparents' home in Burnsville.

About 45 people searched the rugged terrain on foot, horseback and all terrain vehicles during the night in rain and heavy fog. The boys were located Sunday about a mile from the house.

The boys were treated at Mission Hospitals in Asheville for scratches and bruises. Their names haven't been released.

Yancey County manager Michele Lawhern said the brothers had huddled together to stay warm. Both are from Georgia.
