Search Continues for Missing Benbow Girls

Humboldt County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) is searching for two girls who went missing outside of Benbow, California on Friday March 1, 2019.

He added that sisters Caroline Carrico, 5, and Leia Carrico, 8, had received outdoor survival training through their 4-H club, the wire service reported.

The girls had last been seen at their home Friday afternoon and Honsal described their discovery close to Richardson Grove State Park about 10:30 a.m. local time Sunday as "a miracle".

"To have a positive outcome like this is just absolutely incredible", he added, "and I can say it's nothing other than a miracle". The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office has sent a crew with a search dog to aid the effort, according to the the girls' mother, Misty Carrico.

HCSO reports they are looking at all contingencies in this situation, to locate Caroline and Leia in a timely manner. "These girls definitely have a survival story to tell".

The girls were found "in good spirits, not injured", he said.

Humboldt County sheriff's spokeswoman Samantha Karges said Sunday that the girls have not been found despite extensive search efforts.

Robson and Safechuck also sat down with King in an interview that aired last Thursday and stood by their allegations. The judge in the case ruled that Jackson's estate could not be held responsible for Jackson's actions.

The girls went missing less than an hour after their mother told them they couldn't go out for a walk, said Sheriff William Honsal.

"A lot of us didn't get any sleep the last 48 hours or so", Sheriff Honsal said.

"To have a positive outcome like this is just absolutely fantastic", Honsal said. Ten search teams from various agencies combed the rugged, hilly area while the U.S. Coast Guard conducted aerial searches.

A fire captain and firefighter found the girls by following their bootprints, The Associated Press reported.

"We found some granola bar wrappers, and we confirmed with the mum" that they were wrappers of granola bars she purchased", Fridley said. "The mother said, 'No.' And then in the course of getting things ready and stuff, she noticed they were missing around 3 o'clock", Honsal said.

"She melted on the phone", he said.

"So the wrappers showed us a direction from where they started to where the wrappers ended at".
