Two hikers were found early Monday about four hours after they were reported missing in Topanga State Park.

The 51-year-old man and 50-year-old woman were reported missing at about 8 p.m. Sunday by their daughter. An aerial search unit used night-vision and infrared technology to search during the night.

Two LA Fire Department helicopters and a police helicopter were used in the search. The units searched more than 35 miles of trails and covered about 11,000 acres, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.

The hikers were found -- tired, but not injured -- at about midnight. They were airlifted to a helicopter and reunited with their daughter.
