Alaska State Troopers say a 39-year-old Eagle River man and his two sons were rescued after they were reported overdue from a hike.

Nicholas Janes, 11-year-old John Janes and 15-year-old Austin Janes were transported by a National Guard helicopter crew to an Anchorage hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Reports say Eagle River resident Kathern Janes call troopers at about 6 p.m. Saturday when her husband and two sons had not returned from the hike that they started that morning.

The woman told troopers the three were not dressed for winter alpine conditions and did not have the equipment to camp out overnight.

The father and sons were found by searchers around midnight near Glacier Lake.
