EL PASO - A group of hikers are back home safely after emergency crews worked throughout the night to rescue them.

Search and rescue crews found the men in the Franklin Mountains and set up their command post near Gunnison behind the area off pf Magnetic and Titanic in Northeast El Paso.

The El Paso Fire Department says the men started hiking around 4:30 yesterday afternoon and called for help five hours later when they realized that without sunlight and water they wouldn't be able to get down.

One man was dehydrated but was treated on the scene and was fine by the time search and rescue crews got him down.
