Two hikers missing since Tuesday found unharmed near the Dead Sea

Two 18-year-old hikers who went missing in the Dead Sea area on Tuesday afternoon were found unharmed Wednesday morning. The teenagers were hiking in Wadi Nahal Eshelim with a group of 14 others, when they decided to take an alternative route, saying they would rejoin the group at the end of the trek. However, they failed to appear. Search and rescue forces searched for the two throughout the night, backed by helicopters.
