AP reported that three people missing since last weekend were found alive Wednesday in an underground coal mine in West Virginia, authorities said. The three were located Wednesday inside Elk Run Coal's Rock House Powellton mine near Clear Creek, the state Office of Miners' Health, Safety and Training said in a statement. The mine was described as nonoperational. The statement didn't indicate their conditions. It said crews were working to bring them to the surface. TV news video later showed them emerging from an ambulance and walking into a hospital escorted by law officers and rescue workers.

The Raleigh County Sheriff's Office had identified them as Kayla Williams, 25, of Artie; Erica Treadway, 31, of Pax; and Cody Beverly, 21, of Dorothy. They'd been missing since Saturday. An abandoned ATV the four were believed to be riding was found near the mine entrance.

The Register-Herald of Beckley, West Virginia, reported Wednesday that Williams' aunt, Sandra Scarbro of Clear Creek, said, "We got our Christmas miracle."
