Searchers find missing Clear Creek snowmobilers alive
February 11, 2008
EMPIRE ” Rescuers say they found four missing snowmobilers this morning and they appear to be in good shape.
Alpine Rescue Team spokesman Bill Barwick says the two adults and two teenagers are being reunited with their families. The group got lost in the Jones Pass area Sunday night and rescuers began looking for them then.
Barwick says three dozen rescuers braved the cold weather to find the group.
He says he doesn’t know where the snowmobilers are from or how they got lost in the mountains of Clear Creek County west of Denver.
