HOT SULPHUR SPRINGS, Colo. ” Two Minnesota snowmobilers are alive and safe a day after going missing in Grand County.

Forty-nine-year-old John Rocky and his 20-year-old son, Tim, of Cold Spring, Minn., went missing in the Arapahoe National Forest Tuesday.

Searchers spent several hours looking for the pair late Tuesday and again Wednesday morning before family members received a text message.

The message indicated the two were fine but were stuck in deep snow. They said they had built a fire Tuesday night to keep warm.

Rescuers reached the men Wednesday afternoon.
