A massive search is underway in Humboldt county for two young sisters who wandered away from their home.

Two siblings, Leia and Caroline Carrico, aged 8 and 5 respectively were found safe on Sunday after being declared missing for 44 hours.

More than 100 emergency personnel searched for Leia Carrico, 8, left, and her sister Caroline, 5, found 44 hours after they went missing from their Northern California home on Friday, March 1.

The Humboldt County Sheriff office in a statement called it a "miracle" that the girls were found safe.

California police have confirmed that two young sisters who were missing for two days have been found.

HCSO reports they are looking at all contingencies in this situation, to locate Caroline and Leia in a timely manner.

The girls were given food, warm clothing and water before being reunited with their mother.

"A lot of us didn't get any sleep the last 48 hours or so", Sheriff Honsal said. "We could not have had a better outcome than we've had this morning", Honsal said.

Rescuers were hopeful about finding the girls Saturday after they came across prints from the girls' rubber boots and wrappers from the granola bars, Lt. Mike Fridley said. "These girls definitely have a survival story to tell".

At a press conference this morning, Humboldt County Sheriff Sgt. Kerry Ireland said the girls asked their mom to go for a walk around 2:30 p.m.

Teams from Mendocino County, Napa County, Del Norte County, State Parks, National Guard, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Southern Humboldt Technical Rescue, CAL FIRE, the Sheriff's Search and Rescue Posse were involved with the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office in the search efforts.

"My girls were found cold, tired, but alive".

The distraught mother says she told the pair they couldn't go into the wooded area near their houise but soon noticed they had gone.

"The wrappers showed us a direction from where they started to where the wrappers ended up at", Fridley said.

"She melted on the phone", he said.
