Four cousins who went missing after mountain biking in the Angeles National Forest on Sunday have been found.

They were found this morning and there were no injuries, a dispatcher at the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's station told LAist.

The four bicyclists, ranging from 28 and 38, left for their bike excursion at 10 a.m. on Sunday and were expected to return by 3 p.m., according to KTLA. Their plan was to bike from Mount Wilson in the Angeles National Forest to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Windsor Turnout in Pasadena.

However, when the men didn't return that evening, the search and rescue teams of up to 24 people went looking for them around 7 p.m. Temperatures had dropped to 15 degrees by 4 a.m. and they were not prepared to stay out during the frigid evening.

"They didn't show and their family found their cars," Sgt. David Shoemaker of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station told City News Service. "They had no contact. No phones. And they weren't dressed for a cold night outdoors."

The cousins are from Glendale, North Hollywood, Rialto and Sunland.
