SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. (WFTV) — Two Seminole County women who were lost on the Wekiva River are safe Friday thanks to their cellphones.

Investigators said they got lost while canoeing on the Wekiva River.

They were able to call for help, and rescuers used the GPS coordinates from their phone to guide a helicopter to their location.

The women were found just south of Wekiva Falls Resort near Sorrento.

Glad they're safe. It's really easy to get lost in backwaters. You should have maps or a guide when you go there.
