Missing pig hunters walk out of King Country Bush

12:32 pm on 23 May 2016

Three pig hunters lost overnight in King Country bush have walked out to a Department of Conservation base.

The hunters called family members last night to say they were lost in Pureora Forest, west of Mangakino.

A search team was due to begin looking for them, but Senior Sergeant Ray Malcomson says a report has just been received to say they have walked out and are safe and well.

The three are believed to be from the Cambridge area.
