Search & Rescue teams called to find two missing snowmobilers

LOGAN — Search and Rescue teams were called out to help two stranded snowmobilers late Sunday night. The two individuals, both from Florida, became lost while riding east of Hardware Ranch.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Doyle Peck said the snowmobilers were about 8 miles south of Curtis Creek. They reportedly got disoriented and then struggled to build a fire when temperatures began to drop overnight.

One of the snowmobilers was a Type 1 Diabetic and did not have his insulin.

Peck said search and rescue teams were dispatched just before midnight. They located the snowmobilers around 3:30 a.m. Monday morning. Both were in good condition and didn’t require any medical treatment.

Peck said its good a reminder to be prepared when venturing into the outdoors. It is also important to know the area you are going to be in. “I was in that area last summer, it is really easy to get lost if you don’t know the region,” Peck explained.

    Very good to hear that CCSR are still actively on the ball. Having been a passed member of that team brings back good memories of other successful Searches I have been involved in. Thanks guys for being ready to put your own safety on the line for others.
