From Andrew Page in the Local Newsroom:

Only days after a Canadian Hiker was declared officially dead, the police are reporting that 3 more hikers went missing in Kosciuszko National Park on Monday Night.

Police had to conduct a special operation with officers trained in Alpine Search and Rescue Operations to locate the trio.

Temperatures overnight in the area plummeted to minus 7 degrees overnight.

The men contacted Triple 0 and police found them hiding under rocks near Mount Morgan in the early hours of Tuesday Morning.

Duty Officer Ben Bowls with Monaro Local Area Command says they were lucky to be alive after setting out with no specialised equipment and only wearing light clothing.

Meanwhile, the National Parks and Wildlife Service is cautioning bush walkers to respect the alpine environment and be extremely well prepared.
