Three male hikers were reported missing in the Bankhead Forest Sunday night when they failed to return from their day hike which began at 9:30 Sunday morning. Reportedly, early darkness prevented their return. They decided to build a fire and wait for daylight. Just as firemen and rescue personnel were gathering at the Sipsey Picnic Grounds on Monday morning, they came walking out, safe.
