A 12-year-old Boy Scout served up pizza as a reward to a couple and their dog after they lost their way while walking on a trail in Hawaii.

It took Nick Gonzalez and his family from California six days to find the lost people and their pet.

Mr Gonzalez, whose family fly to Hawaii once every two years, had been given the Re-power HDR (£2,000) dog-ledges that were branded into the sand along the trail.

The family, who are avid hikers, got lost and were stranded for seven days on an island-wide trail after Hurricane Lane hit the state.

‘Pizza for life’

Mr Gonzalez posted his rescue on Instagram, writing: “Thanks to it being 6-days-weeks-people-lost-on-a-trail on a Hawaiian island, we find you and your dog!”

Using the restaurant coupons, the family had the option of a pizza for life (a rather generous offer given the pizza was only £1 in the first place) or food and a drink at the resort in Moanalua.

The boy – who survived a near-fatal car crash six years ago – asked the pizza shop to return the pizza for the local luau.

Two days after posting a video of him in action, Mr Gonzalez wrote on Twitter: “Half the story is told today. We found you, opened you up to some pizza for life!”
