12 Apr 2016

From the JTA:

Two 16-year-old girls from the Chabad-Lubavitch community who went missing during a Shabbat afternoon walk while on a class trip in Orlando, Florida, were found in a nearby area of densely wooded swampland.

It took rescue teams more than an hour on Sunday morning to reach the girls, identified as Rivka Moshe and Brocha Katz, both students at the Bais Chana High School in Miami. They were only several thousand feet from the resort in Kissimmee where their class was staying, reported.

The girls were being reunited with their parents, who traveled to Orlando from Miami after the teens were reported missing. They had left the resort  at 3 p.m. Saturday and did not return, school officials told Lubavitch news outlets.
