TAMWORTH (AP) — New Hampshire authorities say a father and son hiking in the White Mountain National Forest are fine after getting lost and having no cellphone coverage for a day.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says 56-year-old William Glynn of Rowley, Massachusetts, and 26-year-old William Glynn Jr. of Hampton, New Hampshire, planned a hiking and camping trip to the summits of Mt. Chocorua and Paugus.

They arrived on Saturday and were due back on Monday, but became disoriented as they attempted to summit Mt. Paugus.

Family members called for assistance when they didn't return Monday night. Conservation officers found their car. The search was suspended until Tuesday morning.

The hikers eventually found a trail and arrived back to their parking area Tuesday afternoon, in good condition.
