Missing North Dakota Men Found Safe

Posted:

Five men missing since Thursday afternoon in the Big Horn Mountains have been rescued. Lt. Mark Conrad with the Sheridan County Sheriff's Office says the men were located on the west fork of Horse Creek around 2:10 central time. He says the men are not requesting medical attention.

Conrad says he doesn't have many details right now. He says the Search and Rescue Team has called for fuel so he's guessing some of the snowmobiles are out of gas.

Four of the five men are from the Turtle Lake-Mercer area and the fifth is from Washburn. All are described as experienced snowmobilers.

Authorities say the men are James and Jaren Murray and Rod Schilling and Dusty Schlichting from the Turtle Lake-Mercer area and Chad Tweeten from Washburn.

Conrad says he's "so elated" by the outcome. Conrad told KX News Friday that the weather was going from bad to worse in the region and he was extremely concerned about the men.

He says over fifty people were working with Search and Rescue to find the men.
