A father and his two young daughters were found safe Feb. 27 after they got lost during a walk in the woods in St. George.

Christopher Leavitt was walking off Turkey Cove Road with his 2-year-old and 6-year-old daughters when he became lost. He had a cell phone and dialed 911, according to Knox County Sheriff Donna Dennison.

Members of the St. George Fire Department went out to search and were able, using cell phone technology, to determine Leavitt’s approximate location. The father and his daughters were located by St. George crews at about 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 27 near the water tower off Turkey Cove Road, Dennison said.

They were unharmed, she added.
