BURNSVILLE, N.C. - Two young brothers reported missing in western North Carolina have been found, after spending a cold night in the mountains.<br />
The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Monday that the two boys, ages 6 and 8, went missing Saturday evening from their grandparents' home in Burnsville.<br />
About 45 people searched the rugged terrain on foot, horseback and all terrain vehicles during the night in rain and heavy fog. The boys were located Sunday about a mile from the house.<br />
The boys were treated at Mission Hospitals in Asheville for scratches and bruises. Their names haven't been released.<br />
Yancey County manager Michele Lawhern said the brothers had huddled together to stay warm. Both are from Georgia.
