NEVADA Search and Rescue Mission Over, Family Found Safely

Reno, Nevada – A Search and Rescue team member located the four children [ranged in ages 3-10] along with two adults in the frigid mountains of Nevada since Sunday, where they were taken to Pershing General Hospital.  They were listed in good condition.

Over 200 people including the Nevada Wing of the Civil Air Patrol with several planes in the sky searched for the missing family, over a 100-mile radius. The family had gone to Seven Troughs to play in the snow.

Great news considering things could have been much worse.

And, KUDOS to the Search teams for volunteering their time, dedication, commitment and devotion to saving others in this cold weather.  Your sacrifices are so much appreciated!

We hope the family will recover soon to enjoy their holidays and much needed rest.  Welcome Home.
