HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Rescue crews in Harrison County have located a mother and three children after they became lost in the woods near the Bethel Mountain Biking Trail off Hwy. 15.

Sheriff Troy Peterson said the woman got separated from the children while riding the trail early Monday evening. She eventually found the children, but Peterson said the group got lost once nightfall came.

Fortunately, the woman had her cell phone and was able to contact authorities, who then guided her and the children to safety.

We will have more on this developing story as more details become available.
