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.
