Teenagers rescued from bush
Two teenage boys from Woy Woy have been located safe and well after getting lost on The Great North Walk at Wondabyne on Wednesday, June 8.
The 14-year-olds caught a train from Woy Woy to Wondabyne, alighting at about 4pm.
The boys intended walking home to Woy Woy via The Great North Walk, but got lost.
One of the boys called his mother on a mobile phone at 6.15pm.
She alerted emergency services.
A search was initiated involving police from Brisbane Water Local Area Command, PolAir, Westpac Rescue, National Parks and Wildlife, and the NSW Ambulance Service.
The boys were located a short time later about 500 metres north-east of the Woy Woy railway tunnel.
They were extracted from the bush by the Westpac Rescue helicopter.
Neither boy was injured.
