Wisconsin authorities say searchers have located three boys who have been missing since Sunday.
    
Authorities feared the boys had gotten lost in an abandoned mine with a maze of tunnels that went on for miles.
    
Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt issued a two-sentence emailed statement Monday saying the boys had been located. He didn't say where or offer any other information.
    
Schmidt's communications director, Christine Churchill, said in a separate email that the boys are safe and a news release is upcoming.
    
The three boys - Tate Rose and Zachary Heron, both 16, and 15-year-old Samuel Lein - were last seen Sunday. Schmidt said at a news conference earlier Monday that their bikes were found off a road near an entrance to the mine.
