MOUNT HOOD, OR (KPTV) -

Two hikers are safe Sunday evening after they got lost coming down Mt. Hood. 

Officials say the hikers had been missing for an hour before crews went to find them. 

It took crews hours to get them down due to the difficult location they were in. Search and rescue officials say the snow doesn't lend itself well to anchors.  

The hikers were not injured.
