Bear Mountain, NY - New York state police searched throughout the night for two Brooklyn teenagers who got separated from their group in suburban Bear Mountain State Park.
Volunteers were assisting with the search on Friday morning.
The 16-year-old boys are from Brooklyn and were part of a group from Karlin Stolin Camp in Highlands in Ulster County. They were last seen hiking on Thursday afternoon in the park, which is in Rockland County.
Police asked volunteers searching for the teens to stop searching overnight due to the darkness and safety but the search resumed at first light today.
Search organizers say they are focusing their efforts at the top of the mountain near the Perkins Tower section of the park.
