By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Two children who went on a walk with their dog Sunday afternoon in the Town of Vienna and didn't return have been found, the Oneida County Sheriff's Office said.

According to officials, deputies responded to the 1800 block of California Road around 1 a.m. Monday on a report of two missing juveniles. A 9-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl had gone for a walk with their dog in a wooded area behind their home Sunday evening. The children's parents called authorities when they didn't return home.

The sheriff's office used a K-9 unit for an intensive search of the area. About 5 a.m., the two were located about a half mile into the woods behind the home. The children were treated at the scene for weather-related exposure by members of North Bay Fire Department and taken to Oneida City Hospital.

The sheriff's office was assisted by New York State Police and New York State Forest Rangers.
