RCMP UPDATE: The search was continued at first light with Search and Rescue members and an RCMP member on snowmobiles. A local helicopter service was also called to assist. At 10:43 a.m. the two males were located by the helicopter. Search and Rescue members on the ground attended to their location and found that both males were in good condition and not injured. It was determined that one of snowmobiles had got stuck badly late in the afternoon. The males decided to stay at the location overnight instead of risking trying to navigate their way out in the dark. Both men are experienced riders and were well prepared with survival gear. Neither male required medical treatment.
