Missing Family Found in Nevada

Missing Family Found in Nevada

There's a happy ending in the search for six people missing in the mountains of northern Nevada.

Search teams have found the two adults and four children that went out in the snow on Sunday and never came home, spending two nights in a canyon about 100 miles northeast of Reno, where temperatures dropped to as low as sixteen below zero.

"We're just ecstatic that everyone's been found safe," said Major Justin Ogden with the Civil Air Patrol.  He added that they had six planes in the air and, 

"...a couple hundred volunteers on the ground."

The family is being treated at a hospital for exposure but not frostbite.  Rescuers say the decision to stay near their overturned Jeep probably saved their lives.  They were able to build fires to stay warm, bringing heated rocks inside the Jeep itself.

Crews launched a search Sunday night for 34-year-old James Glanton, his 25-year-old girlfriend, Christina McIntee, and the four children: a 10-year-old, two 4-year-olds and a 3-year-old.
 
Officials say the group went to the Seven Troughs area Sunday to play in the snow, but never returned home.
