A 27-year-old Northcote woman and a 33-year-old Dunkeld man made the distress call just before 7am as the siblings became lost at the Fortress hiking trail.

Police search and rescue along with Dunkeld SES were ready to begin the search operation when they received the call that they were no longer lost.
