The Forbidden Forest
MONDAY, Sept. 21, 7:54 p.m. — An officer responded to the Nature Preserve after getting a call from three lost students, Meddleton said. The three students, an 18-year-old female, a 19-year-old female and a 19-year-old male, said that they came to the preserve earlier in the day and did not realize that the sun would go down so early and got disoriented once it got dark. The officer arrived at the entrance and flashed his lights and put on his siren so that the students could see him. He then went into the preserve and turned on his flashlight at the bridge. The students walked toward the light and were led out of the preserve. None were injured.
