The Malaga Provincial Police HQ, confirmed it was through a call to 112 that it was learned that the two women had been lost in Los Montes.
They said the hikers, who did not know the terrain, became disoriented and alerted a friend, who in turn contacted the emergency services.
“The 091 room of the National Police then established a device for locating the women based on the location coordinates that the girls provided with their mobile phones”, said a statement.
Officers in the search party, who contacted the women reguarly to check their status and ask them to stay fixed at the same point, faced “a complex search through the multitude of existing trails in the area” until they were found “exhausted” but “not in need of medical assistance”.
