According to the Sûreté du Québec, the two hikers are in their forties and would be used to this kind of expedition.
They have been in the forest for about two days. The two men sent a distress signal to their relatives, who contacted the authorities on Thursday night.
The distress signal sent by the two hikers was accompanied by geographic coordinates, which facilitate the search work of the police.
A helicopter from the Sûreté du Québec is also in the direction of the Monts Groulx to try to locate them.
Sûreté du Québec spokesman Sergeant Hugues Beaulieu claims that the SQ does not know the state of health of the two wanted men.
More details to come.
