Big Horn, Wy (KGWN) Five snowmobilers that were reported missing on Friday were found alive today just after 1:00 PM. Lt. Mark Conrad of the Sheridan Sheriff's Office confirmed that search crews found all five snowmobilers in Big Horn County at Horse Creek Mesa.

The five, who's names have not been released were stranded after running out of fuel. They had been staying at the Bear Lodge Resort. They were last seen Thursday afternoon, but the owner of the lodge didn't report them missing until Friday morning.

They had a 125 square mile search area, and couldn't take a plane out last night due to poor visibility and bad conditions. This morning they resumed the search and found the group. "I'm just so happy they're alive," said Lt. Conrad.

According to Lt. Conrad, none of them requested medical attention.



From KGWN Cheyenne, Wyoming - A search is underway in northern Wyoming for five missing snowmobilers.

Sheridan County Sheriff's Office Lt. Mark Conrad says the group was reported missing early Friday by the owner of the Bear Lodge Resort.

They were last seen about 3:30 p.m. Thursday.

Conrad tells The Sheridan Press that all five of the snowmobilers are from North Dakota and are considered to be experienced.

Search and rescue teams from Sheridan, Johnson and Big Horn counties were participating in the search.

Conrad said visibility in the area is low, and he hopes the men have hunkered down somewhere.
