A Saudi mother and her four little children were found on a hilltop nearly 15 hours after they went missing while on their way to visit her father in another village in the Gulf kingdom, a newspaper reported on Sunday.

Civil defence and police using cars and helicopters found the woman and her children on the hill in Northwest Saudi Arabia after they were attracted by the screams of the baby, Sabq Arabic language daily said.

“They were all in good health but there were in danger of being attacked by wolves. They were very lucky,” the paper said, adding that the children are aged between one month and nine years.
