SHELBURNE, Mass. (WWLP) – Four New York City men called police for assistance Wednesday evening after they became disoriented while hiking the Mass Audubon trail.
Shelburne Fire Captain Robert Manners said at around 6:30 p.m., the men called 911 asking to be located and rescued after they lost track and got concerned because they did not have a flashlight as it got dark.
Police and fire crews from Shelburne Falls, Greenfield, and Colrain assisted with the search. After nearly four hours, crews located the men using a tracker on their cellphones and a drone to pinpoint their exact location.
Two rescue teams located the four men who were uninjured.
