Two hikers are safe after getting lost in the Pine Barrens on Christmas.
Police say they tracked the women's cellphones to just under a mile from Moriches-Riverhead Road near Suffolk Community College.
Dispatchers then used enhanced 911 technology and a GPS system to guide the women toward police units waiting for them.
Officials say there was only one hour of daylight left and the hikers' phone battery was at 30 percent.
The women were brought safely back to their car.
