Found Safe: Mom's hiking: Jen Moran and Elizabeth Edwards Moran- North Bend, WA

 Two missing women who disappeared after heading out on a day hike Sunday in the North Bend area have been found alive.

The two women, identified by friends as Jennifer and Elizabeth Moran of Bothell, were reported overdue Sunday night when they did not return from their hike.

Cindi West with the King County Sheriff's Office said the two left to hike a trail near the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, but apparently became lost. 

Deputies found their car late Sunday near the Pratt River trailhead, and teams with King County Search and Rescue began looking for them at first light on Monday.

They were found around noon after searchers began hunting along a route near the river that hikers commonly take when they get lost in the area. Their conditions are not immediately known.

Jennifer Moran is the executive manager of Carter Subaru in Ballard. Elizabeth Moran volunteers for a nonprofit organization that combats sexual violence. Together, they are moms to five kids.
