Snowmobilers lost

in North Routt found

Routt County Search and Rescue crews were able to find four lost snowmobilers Friday night by talking to the men on a cell phone.

Search and Rescue volunteer Darrel Livingston said one of the men called for help at about 5:30 p.m. after the men had become lost near Firewall, north of Pearl Lake in northern Routt County.

Livingston said all of the men were in their mid-20s and were Routt County residents. The men became lost after they left their snowmobiles and began walking in search of a road.

Liv——–ing–ston said the men became dis—-oriented in the wilderness and were weary from hiking through deep snow for more than an hour.

Livingston said the men were doing well when they were found at about 9 p.m. and that one man had minor injuries.

Rescue crews from Steamboat Lake Outfitters and a search crew led by Routt County emergency manager Chuck Vale were searching for the men.
