MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Two men who were scouting hunting sites in Shelby Forest have been rescued after becoming lost.

A man in his 70s and another in his 40s were located and rescued overnight in a swampy section of the reserve near Memphis.

WMC-TV reported search crews found the men's car Monday night and located 1 of the hunters about four and a half hours later. The other man was found a little more than an hour after that. Both were described as being in good condition.

Shelby County and Bartlett law enforcement officers said deep water and swampy conditions made their search difficult.
