LAWTON, Oklahoma -- Just a week after two hikers are rescued at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, two more hikers are found safe.

Employees at the Refuge tell us they found out about the missing hikers around 12:30 this afternoon.

After a three hour search and rescue they called "difficult" emergency officials were able to save the pair.

Last Sunday, rescuers found two men hiking who fell 30 feet off Elk Mountain.

Officials with the Refuge say the rescue today was not in the same area, but it was nearby.

No word yet on the details of the rescue.
