Six tourists who were lost Saturday at El Angelito Pond in El Yunque Forest Reserve in Luquillo were found by agents of the Luquillo district and personnel from the Río Grande and Luquillo Emergency Management Bureau, according to authorities.

The search began Saturday afternoon after authorities received a call through the 9-1-1 Emergency System reporting the six missing people. Two of the tourists were found on the same day, but due to inclement weather, the search was suspended until Sunday morning, when the remaining four people were located in the Yuquibo sector of the forest reserve.

According to the police report, the rescued were evaluated at the scene by Medical Emergency Corps Bureau personnel and refused to be transferred to a hospital. At the time of their evaluation, all were in good health.
