BOONE, N.C. (AP) -- Authorities rescued three Appalachian State University students after they got lost during a hike in the mountainous Linville Gorge area.

The freshmen students, two men and a woman, used cell phones to call the Avery County Sheriff's Office as darkness fell and temperatures dropped into the upper 30s and lower 40s. The hikers were wearing shorts and sandals, authorities said.

Rescue crews located the students shortly before 11 p.m.
