Lost MN Snowmobilers Found Safe

Posted: Updated:

VOYAGEUR'S NATIONAL PARK, Minn. (AP) - Two snowmobilers who went missing in a St. Louis County park are recovering after an ice-cold ordeal. They spent a frigid Saturday night in an unheated boathouse. 

A Hibbing Daily Tribune report says the two Hibbing men were snowmobiling in Voyageur's National Park. They were expected to return home late Saturday. When they didn't show up, a rescue squad began searching for them Sunday about 3:30 a.m. As officers were checking local resorts and hotels, the men made their way back to the Ash River Trail at 9:30 a.m. 

They told authorities they got lost after getting disoriented in the blowing, drifting snow. They took refuge in the park's boathouse. One man had sustained a minor back injury. Neither man required hospitalization. Their names haven't been released.
