NOTTINGHAM, New Hampshire — A family of seven is safe after getting stranded in the dark at New Hampshire's Pawtuckaway State Park.

WMUR-TV ( reports that the three adults and four children were hiking Saturday when it got dark earlier than they expected. Unprepared for the night hiking, they used a cell phone to call police, who used GPS monitoring to find the family and return them to their car.

No one was injured. Fire officials say the incident was the sixth rescue in the park this year, and they're reminding hikers to be better prepared.
