Orange peels help rescuers find missing sisters

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Authorities say discarded orange peels helped point rescuers to two sisters who were lost in freezing mountains north of Los Angeles.

KCBS-TV (http://cbsloc.al/UeLrsx ) says 16-year-old Ariel Fitzmorris and 21-year-old Allison Fitzmorris went hiking near Frazier Park on New Year's Day and didn't return. They left their cells phones at home.

Searchers couldn't find them that night.

However, Sgt. Ken Smith of the Kern County Sheriff's Department says early Wednesday morning searchers found some orange peels the hikers had dropped.

That clue helped them locate the sisters about 1 { miles from where they were last seen.

They were taken to a hospital for evaluation.
