July 21, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Rescuers found three U.S. college students after they went missing during a weekend hike in Ecuador's northern Andes mountains.

The students were reported missing Sunday morning, said Imbabura provincial Gov. Luis Guerra.

A police helicopter and two rescue teams on foot had been searching for the trio, who have been tutoring children in the indigenous Ecuadorean village of Otavalo for nearly six weeks with the humanitarian group Village Education Project.
