Public Notices/Announcements - Muskoka - Missing Girls Found Safe In Alqonquin Park

(SMOKE LAKE, ON) - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is happy to report that two teenagers, missing in Algonquin Park have been found safe. An OPP Canine Unit located the girls late this morning, July 15, 2019. Officers report that the girls are in good health and have been reunited with their families, who had travelled to the area. The girls had made it about a quarter of the way toward their destination when they realized they had left the trail and were lost. They drew on their education about being in the forest and practiced the message of "hug a tree". When lost in the forest it is always best to stop and stay where you are, rather than continuing on, possibly farther from any trails and potential rescue. The girls were reported missing at approximately 10:00 p.m. on Friday, July 12, 2019. A major search effort began on Saturday morning as members of the OPP Emergency Response Team (ERT), front line members from several OPP detachments, and several OPP Canine Units converged on the area assisted by Park Wardens and members of the Ontario Search and Rescue Volunteer Association (OSARVA). An OPP helicopter and a float plane from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests also took part in the search. The girls, despite becoming lost, did the right things by staying put and rationing their food and water. They had a tent and other camping equipment and limited supplies. The OPP would like to thank our partners and members of the public for support during the search.
