2 Missing NC Hikers Found Playing Music on the Street

At least 200 people participated in the search and rescue operation over three days

Two hikers, who disappeared in North Carolina's Pisgah National Forest on Saturday, were located three days later busking on a city street 30 miles away, NBC News reported.

Tesla Rackley, 20, and her boyfriend Anthony Logan, 25, were reported missing Sunday after they got separated from two people they were hiking with, Henderson County Sheriff's Office Major Frank Stout told NBC News.

After a three-day search, deputies found the pair playing guitar on a street corner in downtown Ashville following a tip.

Stout says the couple "didn't have a clue" that anyone was looking for them and that it didn't occur to them to call their families.
