2 snowmobilers found in Wyoming mountains


ALBANY, Wyo. – Two snowmobilers have been rescued from a southern Wyoming mountain range after their machines broke down.

The Albany County Sheriff’s Office says the men were found about 11:30 Tuesday morning, two days after they went snowmobiling in the Snowy Range area, northwest of the small community of Albany.

One was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Laramie for treatment of possible hypothermia. The other declined treatment.

Lt. Michael Garcia identified them as 36-year-old Adam Picard of the Fort Collins, Colo., area and 22-year-old Paul Larson of Maine. Garcia didn’t have a hometown for Larson.

Picard was taken to Ivinson Memorial Hospital where he declined a request for an interview.

The men were reported missing Monday.

About 30 people participated in the search.
