Two Franklin County deputies hiked five to six miles Wednesday night to locate a woman and her son who went missing in Meramec State Park.

The woman and her husband and 8-year-old son had gone hiking on a trail in the state park about 7:30 p.m. and became lost, Sheriff Gary Toelke said.

Toelke said the husband told his wife and son to stay were they were while he sought a location where he could call out on his cellphone.

The woman and boy were located about 11:30 p.m.
