MANILA – The eight mountaineers in Mt. Marami in Maragondon, Cavite who were earlier reported missing have been found by rescue personnel.

Zeus Ruiz of the Wilderness Search and Rescue Team (WISAR) said the team of mountaineers were found at 7 a.m. today at the common trail of the mountain.

Ruiz said the mountaineers climbed up the mountain on early Sunday. He said a member of WISAR received a text message from one mountaineers later yesterday, saying they got lost and were unable to go down due to rains.

Ruiz said the group decided to spend the night at the mountain while waiting for the rains to stop. – report from Arnell Ozaeta, dzMM
