The Tuscola County Sheriff’s Office said they received a 911 call at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday from a family of hikers who said they were lost in the woods near Murphy Lake.

The family included five children, ages ranging from 5-14 years old, police said.

The Department of Natural Resources, Michigan State Police and several sheriff deputies were called to the area to find the family.
