The Trion Fire Department said they got the call for help from somewhere on D.W. Mountain just before 12:30 a.m. Thursday.

The fire department said the three hikers were “found approximately 300 yards from command post on the other side of the steep ridge in a thicket,” in a post on its Facebook page.
