ARCADIA, Calif., Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Four bicyclists missing since Sunday evening in California's Angeles National Forest have been found alive and uninjured, authorities said Monday.

The unidentified men, who range in age from 28 to 38, were spotted by a search helicopter in the Bear Canyon area of the San Gabriel Mountains and were "lost but not injured," Lt. Angela Shepherd of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

The cyclists were reported missing after they were late returning from a ride, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Sheriff's Deputy Dan Paige said the group was unprepared for the weather in the forest, where overnight temperatures had been in the mid-40s.

"They just had camel packs and T-shirts," Paige said.
