    Digital Desk: Two lost brothers who went bird-hunting in the Amazon jungle on February 18 and then vanished were discovered this week by a tree cutter after he heard one of the boys crying. Gleison Ferreira, nine, and his younger brother Glauco, seven, are alleged to have gone missing while searching for birds in the Lago Capana natural reserve in Brazil's Amazonas state. After one of the youngsters cried for aid, the local tree cutter spotted the boys, who were suffering from acute starvation, dehydration, and skin abrasions.

Glauco and Gleison were discovered over four miles from home by a guy who found them laying on the floor, famished and severely weak, with skin abrasions, after surviving for 26 days just on rainwater. "When I saw my children, I was pleased," the boys' father Claudionor Ribeiro Ferreira told TV station Band Jornalismo. The two lost brothers, Glauco and Gleison informed their parents that they had eaten nothing and had only survived by drinking rainwater while they were missing. According to media sources, when police called off their search on February 26, more than 260 volunteers continued to search for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The magnitude of the gathering that gathered to watch his boys' safe arrival astounded the father. The brothers were evacuated to an ICU in Manaus, the provincial capital. The Ferreira family is from the Mura ethnic group, which is indigenous to Brazil. Glauco and Gleison were spotted in a distant region of the bush and were carried on a boat, according to the Amazon Manaus Post.
