MONTGOMERY, AR (NBC33) — Six boy scouts and two leaders from Lafayette, La are stranded on a hiking trail in a national park at the Albert Pike Camp Ground. Sources tell NBC33 News that the boys have been located, are safe, but are currently stranded. Due to rising river levels, the area flooded, leaving the troop stranded on an island.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office says their responders cannot get to the group because of the heavy rains. Several streams are rising in the area, preventing them from reaching the scouts.
