WASATCH COUNTY, Utah – Two overdue snowmobilers were found to be cold but in good health Sunday morning after they did not return as planned Saturday night.

Wasatch County search and rescue crews were dispatched to search trails in the area of Daniels Summit Lodge and Timberlakes Saturday night around 9 p.m. after two men snowmobiling in the area did not arrive at their destination as scheduled, according to a press release.

Crews searched until about 3 a.m. but could not find the men. The search was suspended until 7 a.m. so crews could refuel and make plans. When the search resumed, crews from Utah State Parks assisted Wasatch County personnel to search Nobletts, Lake Creek, Strawberry River and Co-op Creek Trailheads almost simultaneously.

Around 10:45 a.m. Sunday, crews located 47-year-old Tron Black and 45-year-old Corey Haun. The two men were reportedly cold but in good health.
