ALTADENA, Calif. (AP) — Four mountain bikers missing overnight in the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles have been found safe.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Angela Shepherd says the men were found around 8:30 a.m. Monday after spending a night in the chilly Angeles National Forest. She says they were uninjured.

The men began their ride from Mount Wilson to Pasadena on Sunday morning but failed to return in the afternoon as planned.

Sheriff's Sgt. David Shoemaker tells City News Service that the four — cousins between the ages of 28 and 38 — had no phone contact and weren't dressed for a night in which temperatures dropped into the 40s.
