Officers from the Guardia Civil have rescued seven walkers, including four children, who had become lost in the Sierra Bermeja in the municipality of Estepona.
The Guardia received notice of the incident at about 15.00 last Monday after a number of the party used mobile phones to report that they were lost.
The group of walkers were walking route through the Sierra de Los Reales when it started to rain intensely followed by dense fog, which left them disoriented.
They were only able to give the Guardia a rough description of where they were. However, the civil guards told them not to move from there current location until they arrived to rescue them.
With a matter of a few hours the Guardia had located the group and all returned safely to their homes.
