HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Honolulu Fire Department rescued four hikers who were stranded on the Kaau Crater trail on Friday morning.

HFD said rescuers were dispatched to search for the hikers around 10:50 p.m. Thursday, but they suspended their search just after midnight due to cloud cover.

They resumed their search just before 6 a.m. Friday. They were located and brought back to a landing zone in Palolo Valley less than two hours later.

The three females and one male reported they were hiking for 12 hours before getting lost, HFD said.

No injuries have been reported.
