MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- A 10-year-old boy was found early Tuesday after he and four others got lost on a squirrel hunting trip Sunday in the wilderness of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta.
Authorities said Christian Poole was found around 2 a.m. in the Mallard Lake area near where he disappeared. He was described as exhausted and hungry but otherise in good condition.

On Monday, two men and two other boys in the group were found after being lost in the Oak Leaf Bayou area in Baldwin County, Coast Guard officials said.

One of the rescued men, Tony Poole, is the father of the 10-year-old who was found during his second night lost in the delta. Ken Eslava, spokesman for Daphne Search and Rescue, said the father was being treated for hypothermia. The other man, Tommy Stokes, and his two sons were in good condition.

The hunting group drove an 18-foot aluminum boat about 14 miles north to Oak Leaf Landing just before noon on Sunday. The group apparently left the boat and got lost while hunting for squirrel in the delta, Eslava said.

Search and rescue officials and volunteers from Daphne, Mobile, North Baldwin and Bon Secour took part in the search.
